Pundit issues 'shocking' claim after what he's saw from Antony at Man United

Antony was let down by his Man United teammates during Sunday’s Manchester derby.

That’s according to former Leeds United stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the winger’s start to life at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils lost 6-3 to Man City at the Etihad on Sunday (2 October), though the scoreline flattered the visitors who were 4-0 down at half-time.

The only positive for Man United was Antony’s excellent long-range goal at the start of the season half.

The winger now has two goals in two Premier League games following his big-money move from Ajax in the summer.

Kenny insists Antony’s goal is the sole positive Man United can take from the game.

“I’m not sure you can take a positive from that game but if you can, it was that goal,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“A lot has been said about Antony and how much he cost but he has come in and scored two goals in big games against Arsenal and Man City,

“That’s what you need from your £80million man. It was the shocking defence that really let Man United down and they were up against the best in the world.

“For me, it shows that Antony will do a great job when he’s playing teams who aren’t Man City, it was one hell of a finish, brilliant.

“It’s just a shame his mates let him down against City.”

Antony has made three appearances for the Red Devils.

They are next in action against Omonia on Thursday (6 October).
