EPL: He can’t beat anyone – Rio Ferdinand attacks Man Utd star after 3-2 loss to Arsenal
Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has hit out at winger, Antony for his display during their Premier League 3-2 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.
Ferdinand said Antony could not beat anyone, adding that he is ‘concerned’ by his inability to go past players.
Antony produced an unimpressive display as goals from Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka gave Arsenal the victory over Man United.
Speaking on his FIVE YouTube show, Ferdinand said: “The concerning thing for me with somebody like Antony is that he can’t beat anyone – and for a Brazilian that is surprising!
“He just doesn’t beat anyone and I am sitting there thinking, ‘Was that always the way?’
“I have seen clips of him when he was at Ajax and he was somebody who used to beat people.
“I saw Partey – who I would not put down like a roaster, a sprinter – absolutely burst past him, and I am thinking, ‘Woah, he [Antony] has not got much power in his legs!’”
