Juventus winger Di Maria shrugs off heroics for victory over Maccabi Haifa: Team most important thing

Juventus winger Angel di Maria was delighted after their 3-1 Champions League win against Maccabi Haifa.

Di Maria was named man of the match on the night.

“The group is the most important thing, it was an excellent match. I helped the team win. It's the second victory with three goals scored, something we'd been missing," Di Maria told Sky Italia.

“To win is the most important thing, we fought hard to change the result. I try to do my job, delivering assists is what makes me happy. Assists are more important than goals. I wanted to play like this and I am happy.

“We must work in this direction and try to score even more goals.

“We did a great job today, Maccabi did well against Benfica and PSG, they have important players and played a good game, we'll need attention in the return leg."
