Thursday, January 09, 2014

MADRID - Real Madrid announced on Tuesday that they will investigate a gesture made by winger Angel di Maria during Monday's 3-0 win over Celta Vigo.

Di Maria appeared to grab his genitals after being whistled by the crowd at the Bernabeu as he was replaced by Gareth Bale with 25 minutes remaining.

However, the Argentine has denied there was any malice intended in the gesture and said he welcomed the opportunity to explain himself to the club's hierarchy.

"I made a normal gesture as I was leaving the field," he said.
