Antony is set to reunite with Erik ten Hag as he closes in on his transfer to Manchester United.
Earlier this summer, the Brazil international sent a goodbye message to his former Ajax manager, which gave a strong suggestion that there’s a strong bond between the pair. It’s now something we can look forward to seeing at Manchester United.
At the time, Antony said: “I want to wish you all the best at your new club. I also want to thank you for everything you taught me.
“I am thankful for all the opportunities and learning every day. Know that I will always stand with you if you need me. A big hug and good luck!”
🗣”Know that I will always stand with you if you need me.”
