Antony names his Manchester United player of the season after Brazil legend advice



| Last Updated:


Manchester United winger Antony has named his Player of the Season for the club shortly after receiving advice from one Brazilian legend.

Antony, 24, has completed his second season as a United player, and it has been underwhelming for him and the club.

The Brazilian winger finished the Premier League campaign with one goal and one assist in 29 appearances and it seems that he’s lost his FA Cup final spot to Amad Diallo.

However, despite his difficulties at Old Trafford thus far, Antony has offered his opinion on who should win the Player of the Season award.

There have been some consistent performers in the squad despite it being a poor campaign overall. Kobbie Mainoo, Alejandro Garnacho and Rasmus Højlund have all impressed.

Yet, it is Diogo Dalot who Antony believes deserves the award. The fullback scored in the 2-0 win over Brighton this weekend in the final Premier League game of the season.

Dalot has been a mainstay in the team despite there being injury troubles throughout the squad. He has made 49 appearances this term, missing only two games and starting on the bench just once.

“Best way to push us to next weekend at Wembley. Always special to score for this club,” wrote Dalot in his latest Instagram post.

In the comments, Antony simply responded, “Our player of the season,” using the love-heart and fire emojis.

Rivaldo offers Antony advice

Meanwhile, while Antony has had a difficult time at Old Trafford himself, Brazilian legend Rivaldo has offered his fellow countryman some support and advice.

The former Barcelona star believes that the 24-year-old is a “great player” but could need to leave United in order to return to his best form.

Rivaldo has suggested a move to another top European club outside of the Premier League, with La Liga being the best option.

“I still say Manchester United winger Antony is a great player. He’s already played in a World Cup for Brazil and he’s still young with plenty of football to play,” Rivaldo told Betfair.

“He’s currently at a club that’s been going through difficult times for a while now, so in my opinion, leaving England could be good for him,” explained Rivaldo.

“Moving to a side in Spain, Germany, or Italy could be fundamental for his progression now. With his skills and the football that he can play, I think that he would fit very well into any big team in Spain, for example.”
