Former Manchester United defender labels Antony ‘very immature’

Antony has had a mixed stint at Manchester United so far.

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.

The Brazilian found the net as Manchester United handed Arsenal their only defeat of the league season to date.

However, Antony has since struggled for form somewhat and has now been labelled as immature by a former Manchester United player.

Paul Parker has told Soccernews of the 22-year-old’s struggles to make the desired impact in English football: “Antony has done okay for Man United. He hasn’t been amazing but he is also young and needs to adapt to the Premier League. But honestly, I think that the vast majority of the fans have been disappointed by him.

“I personally think that he is thinking too slow and he seems very immature on the pitch. He needs to beat people more and believe in himself because he has the abilities to be a very good winger for Man United.”
