Antony expressed his ambition.

Manchester United have gone through many changes since Erik ten Hag took over. The most representative thing is the change in the squad. Ten Hag has sent out veteran players such as Juan Mata, Edinson Cavani, and Phil Jones, as well as players who are harmful to the team's atmosphere, including Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard.

He filled the empty space with players he liked. As he has been in the Dutch league for a long time, he has mostly recruited players from the Dutch league, including Tyrell Malacia and Lisandro Martinez. He has even recruited veteran players who have proven themselves, including Kase Meerri and Christian Eriksen. Last summer, he brought in Andreona, Rasmus Hollun, Mason Mount, and Sophie Angam Rabat.

Among them, Anton represents Ten Hag's Manchester United. He is a Brazilian winger, as expected in South America, who has good footwork and shows off his brilliant individual skills. He has been playing for Ajax since the 2020-21 season and has been coached by Ten Hag. He performed well in the 2021-22 season, scoring 12 goals and 10 assists in 33 matches, including the Cup.

Manchester United have invested a lot of money to sign him. The basic fee is 95 million euros (about W138 billion). If you include the options, it has reached 100 million euros (about W145.2 billion).

There was a lot of expectation. But Antony didn't live up to it at all. Shortly after the transfer, he left a strong impact, scoring goals against Arsenal and Manchester City, but that was all. Afterwards, his slump continued, and he recorded only eight goals and three assists in 44 games, including the Cup.

This season has been even more serious. He played in as many as 22 games in the league, but failed to accumulate a single offensive point. As a result, he was ridiculed and called the "Top 140 billion" by Korean fans.

However, he has been recovering recently. Antony, who was substituted in the last match, threatened Liverpool with his lively moves and led his team to victory with a dramatic second-half equalizer.

Afterwards, Anthony revealed his ambition. According to Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European soccer transfer market, he said, "I learn a lot and grow from criticism. I work hard to show my abilities on the field. I know my potential and I know why Manchester United brought me in. I want to give up on the field. Being here has been a lifelong dream of mine. 와이즈토토
