What Antony did in the 87th minute against Arsenal



What Antony did in the 87th minute against Arsenal

Manchester United‘s £86 million signing, Antony, faced criticism from fans after his reaction to being told to play left-back during their recent 1-0 defeat to Arsenal. The loss marked United’s 19th defeat in all competitions this season, intensifying scrutiny on the team’s performance.

Despite hopes of salvaging a better position in the Premier League standings, United find themselves in eighth place with just two games remaining. The pressure was palpable as United sought to avoid their worst-ever season in the Premier League.

Antony’s role in the match drew attention, particularly after a video circulated on social media capturing his apparent displeasure at being shifted to left-back. The Brazilian, who has scored only one goal in the Premier League this season, came on as a substitute in the 70th minute, replacing Amad Diallo.

However, his frustration was evident when he was repositioned to left-back in the 87th minute to accommodate Omari Forson’s substitution for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

In the video, Antony appeared visibly annoyed as teammates Christian Eriksen and Scott McTominay guided him into position, with McTominay attempting to motivate him to no avail.

Antony’s demeanor sparked speculation among fans, with some referencing a similar incident during a previous match against Liverpool when he was also moved to the left side of defense. His interaction with compatriot Gabriel Jesus further fueled speculation, as both players were seen covering their mouths during a conversation.

The incident adds to Antony’s struggles to make a significant impact since his high-profile transfer from Ajax, raising questions about his adaptability and commitment to the team’s objectives.
