Antony has vowed to continue showing his skills and tricks for Manchester United fans, despite fierce criticism from pundit Gary Neville.

On his club debut after an £85 million transfer from Ajax, the 22-year-old stood in front of Arsenal player Oleksandr Zinchenko and tried to confuse the Ukrainian by lifting his leg and spinning around before passing the ball back.

Neville said the Brazilian would have been ‘punched’ for his ‘pointless’ bit of skill in the first half if he had anything to do with it, as previously reported in Sportsmail.

Fellow pundit Jamie Carragher said he would have ‘put him in the stands’ if Antony had tried something like that against him in his playing days.

The Brazilian, who scored the opening goal that day in United’s 3-1 win, has promised not to stop playing skilled football despite the complaints.

Antony told the Manchester United website: ‘I’ve always done this. Not just here, but for all the teams I’ve played for.

‘I’ve been doing it since I was a kid. I’ve always done it – it’s one of my hallmarks.

“I’m already adjusting here and getting used to it. Entertaining is something I have always enjoyed and will continue to do so.’

Antony was a late addition to Manchester United’s roster, while 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo is still at Old Trafford, despite consistent rumors of his departure this summer.

The 22-year-old was replaced by the Portuguese megastar after 58 minutes into his debut against Arsenal, and the Brazilian is delighted to take this opportunity to learn from the man who is 15 years his senior.

“I came to help my teammates. Regardless of age, there is tremendous talent in all players,” said Antony.

‘Words cannot describe Cristiano, the best in the world. I learned a lot from him in a few days. He has an extraordinary mind and when I talk to him I get a lot out of it.

“I’m sure we have a strong attack and it looks promising for the future.”

Manchester United’s European campaign got off to a rough start with a 1-0 defeat to Real Sociedad, but Premier League cancellations give them a chance to recover with Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldova.
