Tyler Blackett: Angel Di Maria amazes Manchester United players in training

Angel Di Maria's tricks in training often leave his Manchester United teammates watching on in amazement, according to Tyler Blackett.

Di Maria has scored three goals in four appearances for United since his 59.7 million-pound transfer from Real Madrid in the summer, while he has also created three more.

Blackett, though, says it has been the Argentina international's ability on the training pitch that has left the Red Devils players in awe.

"He's been amazing," Blackett told Match of the Day Magazine. "He's one of the world's best players and the things that he does in training really make us stop and stare.

"The dribbling, the close control -- these are things that a lot of players would like to have, but that not everybody's got. He really is special."

It is not the first time a United teammate has called Di Maria "amazing." Fellow summer signing Daley Blind recently praised the midfielder's contribution and said he reminds him of Arjen Robben.
