Manchester United claimed their first win of the season against Liverpool last Monday, with Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford scoring the goals in a 2-1 win.

Antony, who was still an Ajax player then, has revealed in his first interview with the club that he was watching the game and celebrated the goals like a supporter.

Of course I watched it. When United scored I celebrated as if I was a fan in the stands. I watched the game closely and attentively, what stood out was the desire, the unity of the team, the fire in their bellies, the desire to play. That’s what delighted me about the team. I absolutely watched the game, every minute of it and was really happy with the win and celebrated a lot.

United take on Arsenal at Old Trafford this weekend, with Antony possibly making his debut, and he’s spoken about his excitement of playing in the United shirt.

I’ve been dreaming about this, I’ve been losing sleep thinking about it, my head and heart were here. Erik knows, everyone at Manchester United knows about my desire to be here and wear the United shirt. I can’t wait to put my boots on and start playing and helping my teammates, I’m really looking forward to it.

My strength is my technique, dribbling, creativity. I think creativity in attack is my main strength Dribbling, passing, playing good balls into my teammates, I think these are my strengths and the difference I make. I’ve played right wing, I’ve played as a no.10 and on the left wing so I’ve played in three different positions.
