‘I am sorry… I tried my best’ – Di Maria pens open letter to Manchester United fans

first_img1 Angel Di Maria has issued an open letter to Manchester United fans after completing his move to Paris Saint-Germain.The Argentine winger joined the French champions on Thursday just 12 months after his much heralded arrival at Old Trafford from Real Madrid.Di Maria, who cost United a record £60m, failed to settle in Manchester and made just 33 appearances for the club.And he has apologised for his failure to make things work at the Premier League club.“I write this note to thank all the Manchester United family for the great support received during the year I’ve been part of this club,” wrote Di Maria.“I can guarantee you it was not for trying. I did my best but football is not like maths: often a lot of things out of our control affect the way we feel and the way things turn out. I am sorry it did not work out as I would have wished in this amazing huge club.“I want to give special thanks to all the directors and management of Manchester United as well as to every member of the staff and colleagues as they gave me all their support. Also a special mention to all the fans who always trusted me and showed me their respect and love.” Angel Di Maria last_img read more

UN-BEE-LIEVABLE! SWARM SENDS SHOPPERS RUNNING FOR COVER

first_imgShoppers couldn’t BEE-lieve their eyes when a swarm of honey bees gathered outside a busy supermarket.An estimated 40,000 of the Black Irish honey bees decided to make their home outside Lafferty’s Supermarket in the village of Creeslough.The shop, which is normally buzzing, was left almost empty for more than four hours before help was called to get rid of the bees. Danny Martin Lafferty, owner of Lafferty’s Supermarket, said the bees definitely took the sting out of his afternoon trade!“I looked outside and I could see people waving their arms outside. It looked like it was snowing for a while.“Then I looked closer and I could see this cloud of bees. Needless to say a lot of people were afraid to come near the shop for the afternoon while they were here,” he said.Nobody knows why the bees chose the entrance above the supermarket to gather but amazingly not one person was stung. Danny called a local bee-keeper who arrived with the necessary equipment to get rid of the swarm.The man managed to sweep the Queen Bee into a holding box before transporting it away.The bee-keeper, who asked not to be named, said he gets dozens of calls from people asking him to remove wasps and other insects each summer.“I’m a bee-keeper and I would only remove honey bees. There must be up to 40 different types of bees and wasps.“If people come across wasps or other insects then they would be better calling a pest control company. “There is still a perception out that that bees sting but it rarely happens. Most bees are so full of honey that they wouldn’t have the energy to muster a sting,” he said.Meanwhile supermarket owner Danny Martin Lafferty said the only visible remains of the unBEElieavable drama were a few trampled creatures.“That’s bees and not customers,” laughed Danny Martin.UN-BEE-LIEVABLE!
