Di Maria hails tough Ivanovic

Manchester United star Angel di Maria has named Chelsea right-back Branislav Ivanovic as the toughest opponent he has faced this season.

“Strong, powerful and quality going forward,” were the three reasons why the world-class Argentina international believes Chelsea’s first-choice right-back has been his toughest opponent since joining the Red Devils.

Di Maria went head-to-head with Ivanovic back in October, when United earned a last-gasp 1-1 draw against Chelsea thanks to a 94th-minute strike by Robin van Persie.

Ivanovic was sent off a minute earlier for a foul on Di Maria but still did enough over the course of the match to leave a lasting impression on the Argentine, who has struggled at Old Trafford since completing his £59.7 million move from Real Madrid last summer.
