Ángel Di María Brings Controversy To Real Madrid's Board

While some believe that Di María should be fined and suspended for what he did when Ancelotti took him off the field, it's impossible to prove his real intentions.

Ángel Di María was booed by the Santiago Bernabéu when he left the field for Gareth Bale early in the second half. The Argentinian winger then did something that can be explained without saying much:

This controversial gesture was soon reported on the Spanish press. Di María explained the situation on an Argentinian diary and said he was just "placing it". Although it's true that Di María's explanation isn't really credible, it's actually impossible to prove that he was trying to offend the Santiago Bernabéu, Carlo Ancelotti, Gareth Bale or all three of them.

That's why Real Madrid will not punish the winger, who could still be looking for a way out of the club during this January transfer window.

But have your say, should Di María be punished?
