Di Maria sets new Ligue 1 record with 18 assists

Angel Di Maria has set a new record in Ligue 1 after ending the season with 18 assists.

The Argentine set up Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lucas Moura in Paris Saint-Germain’s 4-0 victory over Nantes on Saturday evening.

The previous record of 17 assists was set by Marvin Martin during FC Sochaux’s 2010-11 campaign.

After just one season in the Premier League with Manchester United, Di Maria joined PSG in a £44 million deal in August.

The 28-year-old has already won Ligue 1 and the Coupe de la Ligue, while he could make it a domestic clean sweep if PSG beat Marseille in the Coupe de France final later this month.
