Di Maria expects new role

Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria is expecting to play in a more offensive role than he did at former club Benfica. The Argentina international made the big-money move from the Portuguese outfit earlier this summer and, after excelling on the left wing, the 22-year-old is bracing himself for a role in attack. Speaking to Marca, he said: "I think that here I'll play a bit more up front, something different from what I did at Benfica, but I'll get used to the new position. "I always like to go forward, to take risks. I'm not afraid of anything and that's what brought me here."
