‘Di Maria, I’m Sorry,': Filipe Luis’ Regret On Involving Former Real Madrid Footballer’s Wife Resurfaces – News18

Former Atletico Madrid left-back Filipe Luis’ regret of disturbing Angel Di Maria’s game by talking about his wife has resurfaced on social media.

Luis had spoken to Di Maria about his wife to shake up the Argentine’s performance during a match between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. The caption of the post talks about what he had to say about the incident on the Charla Podcast on YouTube. “My biggest regret was with Di Maria. Atleti vs Real, Aguero said ‘If you come and talk about his wife, he’ll get lost’. I spoke about his wife and he was lost. I beat him the whole game”.

While the tactic had worked in Luis’ favour at the time, he did regret his decision to play such mind games. “I got home and regretted it so much. Di Maria, I’m sorry”, Luis concluded on the podcast. The 38-year-old Brazilian recently retired from professional club football at Flamengo. He played his last official game at the iconic Marcana Stadium in his home country of Brazil.

Before retiring, Luis had spells at several top football clubs including Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Ajax. In the same interview, he touched on various topics about his career. Among those was the regret that he talked about. He was also grateful for having such a long career in the sport. After almost competing for two decades, Luis thanked his fans while saying that these 20 years were the best period of his life.

While Luis appears to be happy and grateful since retiring, 2023 started with a little spice from the Brazilian. Earlier last year, Luis had spoken to the Daily Mail about being ‘betrayed’ by coach Jose Mourinho during his short spell at Chelsea. While speaking to the news outlet, Luis said that he was not a fan of being left out of their opening game of the campaign. “When I was on the bench for the first game of the season I knocked on Mourinho’s office door and said: ‘Why did you bring me here? Why didn’t you just leave me at Atletico?’”, he told the Portuguese coach. Luis arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2014 for a reported fee of £15.8 million but he had only made a total of 21 appearances with the Blues before moving back to Los Colchoneros in 2015.

Luis has played a total of 707 club games in his career. He retired with a total of 25 goals and 48 assists in these games.
