Manchester United and Paris St Germain charged by Uefa

However, Di Maria appears to have avoided action for inciting fans after picking up the bottle of beer and pretending to drink from it, and for mouthing obscenities into the crowd following PSG's opening goal in their 2-0 Champions League win.

The Argentine became United's record signing when he made the move from Spanish giants Real Madrid to England for £60 million ($77 million) in 2014, inheriting the club's fabled number 7 shirt in the process.

Di Maria cupped his ears to his former supporters as play resumed, and that seemed to bring the 30-year-old to life.

After a goalless first 45 minutes, PSG finally found a breakthrough when boo boy Di Maria fired a corner into the United box which was volleyed home by French worldwide Presnel Kimpembe on 53 minutes.

'I'm very happy. It's always unsafe with him, with corners, and of course a superb assist for the second goal in the open position and with a flawless pass for Kylian.

"It was hard from the opening minute but I knew this was going to happen", Di Maria told Cadena Cope radio of the atmosphere. "I only had problems with the coach [Louis van Gaal] here".

Di Maria stayed down for an extended period of time while players argued with each other and complained to the referee Daniele Orsato. He was a bit nervous and needed to be calmer in the first-half.

The gesture likely annoyed United fans who are still left disappointed by his below-average tenure at Old Trafford. "If you tease him, it does not make him weaker", he said, Sky Sports reported.

Paris Saint-Germain's head coach Thomas Tuchel said of the shove: "There was no need to push Di Maria into the fans but I don't think it was on goal".
