PSG’s Di Maria blames LVG for regularly changing his position at Man Utd

first_imgAngel di Maria says he was unable to settle at Manchester United because his position kept changing under boss Louis van Gaal.The Argentinian joined United from Real Madrid for a British record £59.7million in 2014 but left for Paris St Germain in August – and he has no regrets about the move.Di Maria told BBC1’s Football Focus: “It’s more that they didn’t let me settle properly than I couldn’t settle.“I started a game in one position then the next game in another. I scored goals playing in one position, then the next game I was picked to play in a different postion. I don’t think this helped me settle.“It’s up to the manager to decide but I think the player should be comfortable in that position and adapt to it.“I left and that team are still playing the same way. Out of the European competitions, far from being champions of the Premier League.“I don’t think it was my fault, or the fault of my team-mates. Every time I was given the opportunity I did all I could but it didn’t work out as I hoped.“So I decided to leave, not only to he happy but to win things. That’s what I’m doing here.”PSG have already wrapped up the Ligue 1 title and are looking forward to a Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City.“I’m very thankful to the manager (Laurent Blanc). From the beginning he was clear where he wanted to play me and has never changed his mind,” Di Maria added.“He has given me total freedom to move where I need to move and I’m very happy here. It wasn’t the case over there (United).” Angel Di Maria is expected to miss PSG’s home match with Nice 1last_img read more

Pick n Pay ups Zimbabwe investment

first_img2 November 2010 The investment in TM Supermarkets will inject new capital into the business and allow for much-needed refurbishment, including new fittings, generators and point of sale equipment. The stake has been acquired from Zimbabwean group Meikles Limited. The TM chain is the largest chain of retail stores in Zimbabwe by number of stores, with 51 retail outlets. South Africa’s Pick n Pay has increased its investment in Zimbabwe’s TM Supermarkets with the purchase of an additional 24% stake, worth about US$13-million (about R90.1-million), taking its shareholding in the retailer to 49%. “We welcome the opportunity to participate more meaningfully in the stabilisation of the Zimbabwe economy, and are excited to participate in the turnaround that is expected.” “Pick n Pay first made the investment in TM in 1996,” said Badminton. “TM has done an extremely good job in this business during very difficult times, facing and enduring severe economic deprivation, hyperinflation, currency collapse and an erratic merchandise availability.” Pick n Pay’s strategy into Africa has mainly been through partnering with locals and through the franchise route, where local experts own the franchise in their own communities. Direct investments are considered on a case-by-case basis, such as with a corporate store that was opened in Zambia. Improving economic stability Africa expansion strategy Badminton added that the conversion to the US dollar as the currency in Zimbabwe had provided a significant amount of stability and was a key factor in Pick n Pay’s decision to purchase the additional shareholding. The transaction is still subject to approval from the relevant Zimbabwean authorities and the South African Reserve Bank, and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2011. “Meikles and Pick n Pay have entered into a shareholder’s agreement to drive this initiative,” Pick n Pay CEO Nick Badminton said in a statement this week. “Certain stores will be re-branded as Pick n Pay stores, so that we can provide a retail experience similar to that provided in South Africa. “With the additional capital available, we believe there is significant upside potential in the TM operation, which is extremely well-run and well-regarded in Zimbabwe,” said Badminton. Currently, Pick n Pay’s foreign operations include 17 stores in Namibia, 12 in Botswana, seven in Swaziland, and one each in Lesotho and Zambia.
