For a long time, Antony had dreamed of becoming part of Manchester United. Finally, his dream did come true and he was able to join Manchester United during the running season.
Brazilian Debuted in Manchester United with a Bang
As Antony became part of Manchester United, he ensured that his debut was a blast for the fans and the viewers alike.
The Brazilian made his debut with a clinical strike and made his debut with a bang. He alongside Marcus Rashford scored a victory against Arsenal and proved that Manchester United was not a losing team.
It is the fourth match in a row that the club has won and in their latest victory Arsenal ended with a 3-1 win.
On Sunday, Antony made his debut for Manchester United versus Arsenal and he was able to prove why he had been signed by Erik Ten Hag in the first place.
Antony’s Senior Football Career
Antony started off his senior football career back in 2018 when he joined Sao Paulo. The 22-year-old Brazilian winger made 48 appearances for the club scoring 6 goals.
The Brazilian moved from Sao Paulo to Ajax in the year 2020 and played there until he was moved to Manchester United in 2022.
At Ajax, the player scored 18 goals making 57 appearances for the club. The player has just moved to Manchester United in 2022. The player has scored 1 goal on his debut for Manchester United.
Manchester United was able to sign the player by the end of the recent transfer window. The club reportedly paid £82 million for the player and signed him last Thursday.
Manchester United Vs. Arsenal
In the debut match, Antony demonstrated tricks, and flicks and his movement was also purposeful. It took the player only 35 minutes to glorify his debut with a goal against Arsenal.
However, Arsenal was able to score an equalizer as Bukayo Saka scored a goal against Manchester United in the 60th minute.
Just when everyone thought that the match would end in a draw, Marcus Rashford scored a goal in the 66th minute. This was a remarkable goal, which was scored through strong and resilient teamwork.
Then in the 75th minute, Marcus Rashford was at it again, as he scored his second goal, which sealed Manchester United’s victory against Arsenal.
In the 54th minute of the second half, Antony was substituted with Cristiano Ronaldo to give the 37-year-old star player the opportunity to show his play.
This is the fourth consecutive win for Manchester United and one of the greatest comebacks for the club after badly losing to Brentford on August 14, 2022.
Manchester United’s next match against Brentford is scheduled on February 25, 2023. It would be an opportunity for the club to show off their skills and redeem themselves against the club.
