Former England international Sue Smith heaped praise on Antony after Manchester United’s new signing got off to a dream start by scoring his first goal to put the Red Devils ahead against Arsenal on Sunday.
United started the game well with Jadon Sancho and Christian Eriksen going close in the opening stages, but it took Antony to open the scoring after Gabriel Martinelli had a goal ruled out for a foul in the build-up.
Sue Smith was full of praise for the new United star.
“I think to score early on in your Manchester United career is huge for him,” Smith told Sky Sports News this morning.
