Gary Neville skewers Antony for "embarrassing" behaviour during the Manchester derby

Gary Neville skewers Antony for "embarrassing" behaviour during the Manchester derby

He was furious.

Gary Neville skewered Antony for his cameo during the Manchester derby.

Manchester City eased past Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday, taking command of the game courtesy of an Erling Haland brace either side of half-time.

And with ten minutes remaining Phil Foden put United to the sword by tapping in Haaland’s square pass.

The frustration around Old Trafford in the closing stages was encapsulated by Antony’s injury-time behaviour.

The much-derided Brazilian, who was a late second-half substitute for United, hacked at Jeremy Doku in the 92nd minute.

When the young Belgian subsequently confronted Antony for the foul, the United star showed more frustration by slapping Doku’s hand.

While Antony was booked for the incident, fans on social media called for the player to be issued with a red.

Another who was furious at Antony’s behaviour was Neville, who was working on co-commentary for Sky Sports.

Clearly furious, the former United captain said: "Antony just has a kick out at Doku. Man Utd have lost their discipline and it starts with their captain.

"Ridiculous and embarrassing from Antony. I’d just send him off.

"Utd have gone missing in the second half. Half the crowd have left because they know what they are."

City are in third, having have now won six of the last eight derbies across all competitions while United are languishing in eighth, already eight points adrift of the Champions League spots.

Next up for United is Newcastle at Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup fourth round before a trip to Fulham in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Manchester City host Bournemouth in the Premier League and then host Young Boys in the Champions League.
