Erik ten Hag praises Antony’s performance at United but sees room for improvement

On this Thursday, the Manchester United faces Nottingham Forest, for the first leg of the semifinal of the English League Cup, at 5 pm (Brasília time), at the City Ground. In a pre-game press conference, coach Erik ten Hag praised striker Antony’s performance, but believes that the Brazilian can still improve.

“When he’s playing, the team is winning. That already sends a message of how well he’s playing. He can do better, I see room for improvement. For example, and I think you also know this, we want him to be more direct and more involved. But, like I said, the team is playing better if he’s on the pitch”, said the Dutch captain.

At the press conference, Erik ten Hag also spoke about the discussion between Bruno Fernandes and Antony, in the 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace, for the English Premier League.

“I think that can happen. They’re both players who play with their hearts and when they bring that into the game they’re at their best, so it’s always a kind of balance.”

“And always between the players, sometimes emotions explode, but I think that, in the second moment, they are already well with each other, so that is not a problem. I think that the players are definitely not frustrated with him”, he concluded. .

Highlight of Ajax in the 2021/22 season, Antony arrived at Manchester United after the English club disbursed 100 million euros (approximately R$ 502 million). The Brazilian striker participated in 18 games and scored four goals.
