Manchester United transfer target Antony produced a masterclass for Ajax during their 6-1 win against Groningen on Sunday, just one day after Erik ten Hag’s side were thrashed 4-0 by Brentford in the Premier League.
The Brazilian winger scored Ajax’s second of the match with a trademark left-footed strike from the right flank, minutes after gliding past three Groningen defenders with sublime skill in the penalty box.
Ten Hag has made no secret of his desire to reunite with the 22-year-old, having built up a positive relationship with the youngster in Amsterdam.

But after weeks of negotiation, Manchester United fell short of Ajax’s reported £67m valuation, and it seems Antony is more than happy to stay put and continue thriving with the Eredivisie giants.
Speaking to Dutch outlet NOS, the Brazilian international admitted that he was ‘fully focused’ on Ajax, a mentality he more than displayed on Sunday.
‘Will Ten Hag call me? No idea,’ Antony said.
‘He has to discuss this with my agents, I’m focused on here. What will come will come, we’ll see.
‘I feel good at Ajax. I give everything for this club, every minute. So I am loving this city and this club.’

Antony’s masterclass, combined with his commitment to Ajax, continues to rub salt in the wounds of Red Devils fans, who have watched their team open the new campaign with successive defeats to Brighton and Brentford.
Ten Hag’s side sit rock bottom of the Premier League and still look a way off signing any major or significant reinforcements this summer, having failed to lure Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong and new Red Bull Leipzig striker Benjamin Sesko.
Meanwhile in Amsterdam, ex-Spurs winger Steven Bergwijn has kicked off his Ajax career in explosive fashion, bagging a hat-trick against Groningen in only his second league match at his new club.
