Man Utd told to sell £82m Antony as soon as possible to avoid repeat of Anthony Martial situation by club legend Dwight Yorke.



Dwight Yorke, a club legend, advised Manchester United to sell Antony for £82


million immediately to prevent a recurrence of the Anthony Martial matter.Dwight Yorke has cautioned Manchester United to sell away £82 million ($96 million) Antony immediately in order to prevent a recurrence of the situation involving Anthony Martial.



Critics have already labeled the Brazilian winger the greatest financial waste in Premier League history, as he has appeared in 22 appearances across competitions for over 1200 minutes this season without contributing to a single goal. Multiple sections of the audience have repeatedly demanded that United show Antony the door, and now club legend Yorke has chimed in. Antony, in his opinion, is an impending Martial who will be considered deadwood and remain with the squad until their contracts expire.Yorke told Footy Accumulators, “When I consider successful Manchester United players from the past, they were all anxious to make their mark on the club’s history and to be a part of the establishment. I doubt that Manchester United players are cognizant of this at the moment. It should not come as a surprise that Kevin De Bruyne returned twenty minutes later with an assist. Moreover, the fact that we are still discussing Antony and his contributions is not surprising given that he was purchased for £85 million.”When signing a player for that price, doubts will inevitably surround their performance, particularly when they are representing a club such as Manchester United. Players such as Antony will recognize that their performance is subpar. It is difficult for him, and I sympathize for him, but if things do not work out, it is his and the club’s responsibility. Unless the club expeditiously transfers these players, it will revert to the same predicament each year: having average players bound by lengthy contracts without delivering the expected level of performance.THE MUCH LARGER IMAGE

As Rasmus Hojlund continues to acclimate to the rigors of the Premier League and Marcus Rashford reverts to a diminished form, there have been demands for additional attacking reinforcements. A few candidates have already been mentioned, including Karim Benzema, a former Real Madrid attacker, Michael Olise of Crystal Palace, and Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur. Yorke, one of the most prominent figures, decided to lend his support to Son because he believes the South Korean would make the decisive factor at Old Trafford.”Rasmus Hojlund is not useless; I feel terrible for the child, and I am well aware that he arrived in this world under extremely trying conditions.” Undoubtedly, he possesses potential; however, his immediate environment is devoid of any mentors. “Extremely little experience exists on this side,” he stated.


“I will not assign blame to Rasmus, and I would never label a United player or any professional player as useless.”


“Karim Benzema would bring a wealth of experience to the table, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani have already attempted this strategy for the club.” This strategy is adequate, as these players continue to exhibit the occasional moment of brilliance, but United are not where they should be. They should invest in athletes such as Son, who have the potential to significantly impact the team.Occasionally, signing older athletes is successful, and occasionally it is not. Considering Van Persie’s extensive football experience, Sir Alex was well-advised to acquire him. “No one was surprised by Van Persie’s performance, as everyone was aware of his capabilities.”THEN WHAT?

Antony was the first player in United history to score in each of his first three Premier League contests. However, he quickly ran out of steam against more decorated opponents and concluded his rookie campaign with a meager eight goals. He will attempt to recover in the second half of the season, beginning on January 28 with an FA Cup fourth-round match against Newport County.
