After his performance against Sheriff, the Brazilian winger received mixed reviews, but fellow countryman Neymar urged him to “keep it up” and play with “boldness and joy.”
However, Ten Hag denied that was the case when he was asked by Sky Sports if Antony’s absence was related to the showboating, replying: “No, nothing [to do with that]. He is injured. I hope it’s not too bad, I think it’s not too bad. In a couple of days, he will be back.”
