- Antony out against West Ham
- He was criticized for his spinning technique
- Ten Hag clarifies that the player is injured
Antony was criticized by Manchester United legend Paul Scholes for his ridiculous spinning technique during United’s Europa League game against the Sheriff in midweek.
He then misplaced the pass and sent the ball out of play. Erik ten Hag then promised to “fix” the player’s attitude after the incident and wild speculation suggested Antony was left out of the team in Sunday’s 1-0 win against West Ham in the aftermath.
WHAT IS SAYING?
Even so, Ten Hag denied this when asked by Sky Sports about Antony’s absence related to his skill show action. He replied: “No, nothing [hubungannya dengan itu]. He’s injured. I hope it’s not too bad, I think it’s not too bad. In a few days he will be back.”
Not everyone criticizes winger The Brazilian was linked with his performance against the Sheriff, while compatriot Neymar instead told him to carry on and play with “courage and joy”.
NEXT FOR UNITED?
If he recovers in time, Antony could be back in action with United on Friday (4/11) WIB when they face Real Sociedad in the Europa League.
