Manchester United winger, Antony, has revealed that he is happy to experience life alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and is looking to learn as much as he can.
Recall that Antony joined the Red Devils from Ajax in the summer and has scored one goal.
In a chat with ESPN, Antony stated that Ronaldo has taken him under his wings at Old Trafford.
“I’m feeling very happy, and I told this to him, because we always follow up and have this dialogue,” Antony told ESPN Brasil.
“He always makes me feel comfortable. It looks like I have known him for a long time, and I told him this.
“He has a beautiful history and he is a huge reference for those who are younger than him. Something flashes in my mind, like we play video games [of him], watch him on television and right now I share some moments with him, for me it is very rewarding.
“Like I said: I’m still young, I am 22 years old and I’m learning a lot from him.”
Antony was born in Osasco, São Paulo, Brazil where he grew up in Inferninho, a favela far from the city centre. He grew in a difficult upbringing, surronded by criminality, despite that he was able to focus on football. Growing up, he would play football wherever he could on the streets or in his house, combining his love of futsal with street football and regularly attending São Paulo matches with his aunt. He is of Portuguese descent.
He made his debut for the Brazil national football team on 7 October 2021 in a World Cup qualifier against Venezuela. He came on as a substitute in 77th minute and scored a goal in added time to establish the final score of 3–1 for Brazil.Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
