Antony speaks out on making history with Manchester United

Antony spoke out on making history with Manchester United on Sunday evening.

Manchester United faced off with Everton on Sunday evening in a Premier League clash.

The Red Devils were looking to bounce back from their 6-3 loss to Manchester City the weekend prior.

However, whilst Everton have not been the best team of late, they had a decent start to the campaign, proving a difficult team to break down for many sides.

But when all was said and done on Sunday, Manchester United were able to come away with a 2-1 win thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and new signing, Antony.

Antony has had a bright start to his Premier League career, scoring three in three for United. Said tally has put the Brazilian in record books as the first Red Devil to score in each of his first three league matches for Manchester United.

After making history with United, Atony shared his thoughts on social media.

Taking to Instagram, Antony wrote: “Amazing! Already making history and living the dream here! Thanks, team, for allowing and supporting me to achieve that.. and I can promise you that we are just beginning! Let’s go for more!!”

Erik ten Hag also spoke about Antony post-Everton: “He needs challenges, that’s why he came to the Premier League, he gets it here. He wants to play with the best players, the highest stress factors against the best players and from there on he will step up.

“That’s what you see: first weeks, he scored goals, he did good stuff, but also I saw a lot of room for improvement in his game, and what I was happy with the goal he made now was out of the moment of getting in behind. He has to do that more, he has to use his space, he has a good dribble, but he needs more variation.

“In the first game, he was not always that good defending-wise but today he was really good, really disciplined. He had good positioning, good anticipation, so he had quite an impact on this team’s performance.

“He can (go on the outside more), it’s preferred and he had to go both ways, you have to work on that point and we already did in Amsterdam with him, working on that and he can also cross with his right foot.

“But he is a young player we have to develop but he has to develop himself.”
