Angel Di Maria's Shocking First Pass for Manchester United, but It Gets Better

Angel Di Maria was thrust straight into the Manchester United starting XI after signing for £59.7 million this week, and he gave fans an early glimpse of what he could do. 

The first effort was not so great—a driving run but a terrible through pass for Wayne Rooney (above).

But later he made amends with a superb pass from deep to pick out Robin Van Persie.

Absolutely gorgeous ball by Di Maria to Van Persie.
