Antony has had a tough start to life at Manchester United, with everyone questioning the huge price tag, with goals and assists a rare feature of the Brazilian’s game.

However, last weekend, Antony earned some good favour with the supporters after scoring a late equaliser in our FA Cup quarter-final game against Liverpool, which we went on to win 4-3 in extra-time.

Speaking with the club’s official site, Antony revealed he had a good feeling before last Sunday’s game, and that he is grateful for the encouragement from best mate Diogo Dalot.

Before the game, I told Diogo that I felt something different. I felt something good. I felt I was going to score today, so I’m very happy about that.

With regard to Dalot, as I said, he’s my best friend here at the club. He’s a guy we’re always talking to, he’s always advising me and his mentality is out of the ordinary.

I’m very grateful to God and to a friend I talk to a lot. Diogo Dalot is more than a friend to me, he’s a guy who helps me every day at the club. We have a phrase that we always say to each other: the patient guy is unbeatable. We always talk about it. So I’m very grateful to him for his advice, for the moments we had together talking. He’s a guy who’s helped me a lot.
