Man Utd winger Di Maria proud to make FIFPro World XI

Manchester United winger Angel di Maria is proud to have made the FIFPro World XI.

The Argentinian attended the event in Zurich and witnessed former Real Madrid team-mate and ex-Reds winger Cristiano Ronaldo collecting the premier prize, but his inclusion in the World XI, as voted by more than 20,000 professional players, was a huge honour.

"It was a privilege and an honour to be named in the FIFPro World XI at the Ballon d'Or ceremony in Zurich on Monday," Di Maria told ManUtd.com. "To be named among the world's elite players is truly humbling.

"Since I was a young boy, all I have ever wanted to do is play football, so to receive awards like this is an added bonus. It was a great night and I'd like to thank everyone who voted for me."
