Manchester United winger Antony has revealed his favourite moment in a Red Devils shirt since making his summer move from Ajax.
90min first revealed in February 2022 that Antony was on United’s radar, and after they appointed Erik ten Hag as manager, this interest intensified.
After a protracted transfer saga, the Brazil international made the switch to Old Trafford at the end of the summer window for an initial £82m.
While his return so far of seven goals in 30 games across all competitions is fairly credible and he played a hand in helping win the Carabao Cup, Antony has largely underwhelmed in a United shirt thus far.
He made a fast start to life in England after scoring on his debut – a 3-1 win over Premier League leaders Arsenal at Old Trafford.
And in an interview with GQ, Antony picked out this moment as his favourite so far for United.
“I think my first [goal was my favourite moment]. It was like living a dream,” he said.
“Making my Manchester [United] debut, at Old Trafford, in a derby against Arsenal, and still scoring a goal? It is not possible to be more perfect.”
As mentioned, Antony has so far failed to live up to his monstrous price tag, though this is understandable as he is still only 23 and this is his first season in England.
His highlight reel is a rather impressive one, however. He’s scored outrageous long-range goals against major sides like Manchester City and Barcelona, while he most recently was in the scoresheet in United’s 4-1 win at home to Real Betis.
Antony made a fast start to life in England, scoring in each of his first three Premier League games. However, he has not found the net in the league since the final goal of this stretch all the way back in September.
