Antony sends message to Cristiano Ronaldo after Manchester United debut
Antony sent a message to his new teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, after Manchester United’s win over Arsenal.
Manchester United faced off with Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon and came away with a 3-1 win.
Arsenal were arguably the better side across the 90, but United’s ability to break, combined with Arsenal’s Gung ho approach after the Red Devils’ second goal, allowed the Manchester outfit to come away with a 3-1 win.
Antony also 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.
Erik ten Hag was also full of praise for the former Ajax man following his Premier League debut:
“I know what he can be,” said Ten Hag. “On the pitch he is brave.
“During the transfer window we looked for players with the right character, who can fight and battle.
“He has missed some training, so he lacks a little bit of power but you can see his potential,” said Ten Hag.
“He is really good with his pace and his dribbles and also his pressing capabilities. The intensity of the Premier League is high and that is going to be a challenge for him but we have seen his potential.”
