Antony SLAMMED for ’embarrassing’ showboating vs Sheriff as Man Utd boss Ten Hag subs him off after double spin trick

MANCHESTER UNITED new boy Antony pulled off an “embarrassing” double spin skill before woefully misplacing his pass.

The Brazil star, 22, has pulled off the trick on a number of occasions, more recently in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea.

He tried it again in the 2-0 win over Sheriff in the Europa League and pulled it off, albeit unchallenged, but proceeded to misplace his pass intended for Casemiro.

However, his trickery didn’t impress boss Erik ten Hag, who proceeded to shake his head.

And to make matters worse for Antony, his showboating came at 0-0 before Diogo Dalot opened the scoring, and he was taken off at half-time.

Antony was replaced by Marcus Rashford, who went on to score United’s second.

Ex-pro Robbie Savage, whose son Charlie is on the books at Old Trafford, labelled the deadline day signing “embarrassing” on BT Sport commentary.

Man Utd legend Paul Scholes was also left unimpressed.

Scholes, who won 11 Premier Leagues and two Champions Leagues at Old Trafford, said: “I don’t know what he’s doing. It’s ridiculous. It’s showboating.”

Fans agree with Scholes and Savage’s assessment.


One fan brutally labelled the winger a “£100million fidget spinner”.

While another tweeted: “For the first time in my life i actually think i agree with Robbie Savage tbh.”
