Angel Di Maria’s wife, Jorgelina Cardoso, rants against United: Manchester is horrible

Angel Di Maria’s wife, Jorgelina Cardoso, rants against Man United

Argentine TV show El Trece have spoken to Jorgelina Cardoso, who is the wife of PSG winger Angel Di Maria.

Di Maria joined PSG from Manchester United in 2015.

The forward only spent one year at Old Trafford following four seasons with Real Madrid.

In her El Trece interview, Jorgelina Cardoso revealed that she never wanted her husband to join Man United.


‘Manchester is horrible, it’s a sh*hole’

As translated by AS, Jorgelina Cardoso told El Trece the following:

I remember Angel coming up and saying, ‘An offer from Manchester United has come in. Maybe we’ll be a little more financially secure.’

We fought about it. I told him, not a chance, he could go on his own. ‘No, come on. Let’s go’, he replied.

There was a lot of money involved, and afterwards, the Spanish were calling us money grabbers. And they were right!

If you are working for a company and the competition comes along and offers to pay you double, you take it!

I didn’t want to go to Manchester because at that moment in time, I was friends with Gianinna Maradona, who was married to (Sergio) Agüero, and we flew from Madrid to his house in Manchester to pay him a visit for two or three days when Angel had a few days off at Real Madrid. It was horrible! All of it was horrible.

We went to the house and we were like… ‘See you later guys, we’re out of here’. When we left, I said to him, ‘Go to any country – except England’.

Anyway, one year later and there we were in England and it was horrible, a shithole.

I didn’t like anything about it, not a thing. The women are all skinny, prim and proper… weird. You’re walking down the street and you don’t know if they’re going to kill you or what.

The food’s disgusting.

All the girls are all dolled up to the nines, perfectly made-up and there’s me with my hair in a bun and with no make-up on.
