Di Maria needs to adapt like Mesut Ozil did says Jenas [divider]
Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria must work on improving his strength according to BBC football pundit Jermaine Jenas.
“Angel Di Maria is obviously struggling at the moment,” Jenas said on BBC Five Live.
“He reminds me of Mesut Özil at Arsenal, starting like a house on fire and then going downhill. He needs to work on his body strength. That’s just what Ozil has done.”
Di Maria has come under fire from sections of the press and fans for his performances this season.
The Argentinian international joined United on a £59.7 million move from Real Madrid in the summer.
Di Maria has four goals and nine assists in 25 appearances for the Red Devils this season.
Özil was criticised for his work rate before getting injured in October.
The World Cup winner worked on his strength and fitness while out. Özil has covered more distance than any other Arsenal player since fully recovering from injury and returning to the team.
