Angel (di maria) lists the following players as his top XI: Cristiano Ronaldo is not in sight.

The team that Angel Di Maria considers his all-time best eleven is revealed. It’s not surprising that no Manchester United players are included, considering how his season at Old Trafford ended, but Cristiano Ronaldo’s name is missing from the team roster.

After nearly two decades of representing both Argentina and several of Europe’s top teams, di maria has had the honor of playing alongside numerous football players who are truly elite in their field. Consequently, choosing a teammate’s all-time favorite starting lineup would never be easy.

The 35-year-old assembled the group for the TYC Sports television network in Argentina. Here are the people who were chosen without further ado.

GK: Emiliano Martinez Di Maria started in goal alongside Iker Casillas, Gianluigi Buffon, and Keylor Navas, but he was replaced by the Aston Villa goalkeeper.

You can see why, considering Martinez’s outstanding contributions to Argentina’s World Cup and Copa America victories. Just that alone makes Randal Kolo Muani’s admission worthwhile.

It’s not in vain that Ramos’s outstanding performance was made possible by his last-minute heroics.

When it came to his 2014 departure from Bernabeu, Di Maria has always been appreciative of Ramos supporting him.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, and Iker (Casillas).They fought until their departure, but as he later recalled, it’s difficult to beat Florentino Perez, the club president, who is the little man in charge of Real Madrid.

Whatever transpired happened, but I will always be appreciative that I was trusted.

Javier Mascherano, CB
Di Maria had played against his fellow countryman at Barcelona in his heyday, so he was all too familiar with what it was like to face him.

Nevertheless, he understands the importance of having a warrior like that on your side. Di Maria shouldn’t have been shocked that Mascherano went above and beyond to prevent him from scoring because he was such a dedicated player that he once tore his anus during Argentina’s journey to the 2014 World Cup final.

There’s a compelling case to be made that Di Maria ought to have been given a penalty when PSG famously lost to Barcelona 6-1 in the Champions League in 2017 and Mascherano fouled. However, he doesn’t seem to be harboring any animosity; rather, it seems like there is grudging respect.

Following the game that Di Maria remembered, he came out and acknowledged that for himself.

He touched me just as I was ready to shoot. It was all he had. I could have scored; there was no other option, and I was by myself.

The referee, however, had a different idea and whistled for something else rather than for us. He didn’t see anything.

You can see why, considering Martinez’s outstanding contributions to Argentina’s World Cup and Copa America victories. Just that alone makes Randal Kolo Muani’s admission worthwhile.

The world’s best goalkeeper is El Dibu (Martinez). Move on and weep somewhere else. Adil Rami called the goalkeeper “the biggest piece of sh*t in football” for his extravagant World Cup celebrations, to which Di Maria responded.

Sergio Ramos, right back
With his man-of-the-match performance in the 2013 Champions League final that secured Real Madrid’s much-needed La Decima, Di Maria can thank Ramos for ensuring that his outstanding play was not in vain.

When it came to his 2014 departure from Bernabeu, Di Maria has always been appreciative of Ramos supporting him.

Ronaldo Cristiano He later said, referring to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, that it’s tough to beat the little guy who runs the team. Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas they fought against by departure.

Nicolas Otamendi, CB
Although Otamendi is starting for Benfica alongside Di Maria, the former Manchester City defender is undoubtedly included in this lineup because of his international accomplishments.

Although he has faced criticism from time to time, he was Argentina’s pillar of support as they won the World Cup and Copa America. Di Maria is eternally grateful for that.

Marcelo LB
Di Maria was paired with a surprising number of left-backs who are genuinely elite in the game, despite the intense competition for every other spot in this starting lineup.

Marcelo dominates the opposition and is one of the most decorated players in history. The Real Madrid hero is far superior to Layvin Kurzawa, Maxwell, Nicolas Tagliafico, and Luke Shaw.

Direct Message: Rui Costa
When Di Maria arrived in Europe as a young, fresh-faced teenager from Rosario, legendary Portuguese midfielder Costa—the only selection from the Argentinian’s first spell at Benfica—was back at his boyhood club, living out his twilight years as a senior leader in the dressing room.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, ST
Considering that the two only played together for one season at PSG, their inclusion was somewhat of a surprise. Although Di Maria played roughly a hundred more games than Edinson Cavani, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Karim Benzema combined, Ibrahimovic is the player of choice.

To be fair, that year brought out the best in each other. PSG under Laurent Blanc had an incredible season in 2015–16, finishing with a record 96 points and over 100 goals in Ligue 1.

Di Maria recorded a career-best 25 assists and 15 goals, while Ibra finished with a career-best 38 league goals and 50 goals overall.

FWL: Kylian Mbappe Di Maria and Mbappe teamed up for 31 goals, with Mbappe helping out on five of Di Maria’s goals and Di Maria helping out on 26 of Mbappe’s goals.

When you take into account how many great players Di Maria has lined up alongside for club and country, that is the most joint goal participation of any of his teammates.
