Ajax: Update On Antony After Leaving Squad Amid Manchester United Interest

Ajax head coach Alfred Schreuder has said that there is no indication to prove Manchester United’s ongoing pursuit of winger Antony.

The Winger was excluded on the matchday squad for the second weekend, and was not among the starting line-up nor on the bench for the clash with FC Utrecht.

Anthony had no contribution in last Sunday’s 1-0 win against Sparta Rotterdam as it was said that he went on ‘strike’ and refused to train on Friday and Saturday.

The decision of Erik ten Hag, the Manchester United Coach to build up his striking force by adding another forward to squad before the transfer window closes was defeated as Schreuder said that Antony is not for sale.

“The Antony situation hasn’t changed compared to last week. We discuss it internally every day, also with the player. He reports himself at the club and we speak. But I want to focus on the players we have here, for now Antony is not important,” said Schreuder.

In an interview, Antony expressed his displeasure over his continued stay at Ajax, noting that he wishes to leave the Club before transfer window shuts.

He said: “Since February of this year, my agents came to Amsterdam to inform Ajax of my desire to leave the club to face new challenge and that some interested clubs would arrive and with them, certainly a great offer.

“In June of this year, I interrupted my vacation and came personally to inform the managers of Ajax, including new coach, about my wish to leave and that they should consider this possibility, because it was a project for two seasons.

“During the window months, meetings continued and I also received a proposal from Ajax for contract renewal. I made it clear once again: I WANT TO LEAVE,” he said.
