It has been reported that Argentina coach Tata Martino has been discussing the best role suited for Manchester United winger Angel di Maria.

Arguments rage as to how best Louis van Gaal utilises Di Maria, but Martino opted to turn that round; the former Barcelona boss believes the midfielder is capable of plugging any gaps needed in the north-west. There is a sense that trial and error may be the way for United to grow long-term.

“With regards to his position, I would say that Angel is the type of player who can play a number of different roles expertly,” he said.

“You only have to look a few seasons back when he played on the right side for Real Madrid and in the season just gone, he featured more on the inside-left in a slighter freer role.

“Obviously, in the World Cup, he did very well when he played wide left so really, in terms of positioning, he can adapt to anywhere where the manager asks him to play.”
