Antony's actions during the international break will delight Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag

Antony's actions during the international break will delight Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag

He is determined to become a starter for Erik ten Hag's side.

Manchester United winger Antony has been working hard to improve his game during the international break as he looks to build on his goal against Liverpool.

The 24-year-old was named on the bench for United in their FA Cup quarter-final clash against Liverpool but after replacing Rasmus Hojlund late on, he soon repaid Erik ten Hag's faith with a rare right-footed strike.

It was only his second goal of the season; an output that will no doubt frustrate the Brazilian, who was left out of the latest Selecao squad for games against England and Spain.

That being said, Antony is determined to improve after a difficult season.

As some of his teammates rest following a demanding campaign, the Brazilian travelled to Madeira to train at the Fisio Clinic – a facility that vows to help take athletes to ‘new heights of performance’.

Pictures of Antony going through his strength and conditioning session with trainer Joao Pedro Silva soon emerged on social media, with Fisio Clinic posting about the visit on their Instagram account.

"It is with great pleasure that we welcome the renowned international athlete Antony Santos to our Performance Medical Gym," they said.

"At our space, we are constantly seeking to raise the standards of training, helping athletes reach new heights of performance. The presence of a player as talented as Antony Santos only strengthens our commitment to excellence."

They added: "Thank you for choosing our clinic for your training. It was an honor to have you with us."

Speaking after United's win over Liverpool, Antony admitted he "needed" to score against Jurgen Klopp's side.

"It has been a period of a lot of learning," he told ESPN. "I try to learn from each criticism, understand where I can improve.

"I have been working silently to evolve and show my football on the field. I have also been training my right foot, to make it better.

"I know my potential and I know why Manchester United hired me. I want to repay all of this on the field."

He added: "We [United] have the possibility of winning another title for the club and we will fight for it."
