Antony opens up on relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo

Antony has been speaking about his relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.


Manchester United signed Ajax winger Antony in the final week of the summer 2022 transfer window.

The deal includes a potential €5m (£4.27m) of add-ons - making him United’s second most expensive signing, ahead of the £80m paid for defender Harry Maguire.

Antony, 22, scored 24 goals and provided 22 assists in 82 appearances for Ajax and got off to a bright star for Manchester United as well.

United faced off with Arsenal at Old Trafford last Sunday and came away with a 3-1 win.

Antony made his debut for Man United on Sunday and scored his first goal for the club.

Following the game, Antony took to Instagram to send a message to his new teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo:

“You are a giant, what an honour Cristiano Ronaldo to play by your side,” Antony said on Sunday.

And now, Antony has shared an insight into his relationship with CR7:

“I’ve come to help my team-mates,” Antony explained. “Regardless of age, there’s immense talent in all the players.

“Words can’t describe Cristiano, the best in the world. In just a few days, I’ve learnt a lot from him.

“He has an extraordinary mind and, whenever I talk to him, I take a lot from it. I’m sure that we have a strong attack and it’s very promising for the future.”
