The Moment Man Grabs Ajax Jersey From Antony And Disappears Into Crowd
| Last updated
A cheeky fan was spotted grabbing a match-worn shirt from Antony's hand before disappearing into the crowd following Ajax's dramatic 3-2 win against Feyenoord in De Klassieker.
Two late goals from Sebastian Haller and in-form winger Antony secured a crucial three points for Ajax in the Eredivisie title race.
Feyenoord took the lead twice through Luis Sinisterra and top scorer Guus Til, but Erik ten Hag's side staged a late comeback thanks to the brilliance of Antony, who celebrated the winner in true Lionel Messi fashion.

Antony, who picked up a second yellow card in the 95th minute for time wasting, went over to celebrate with the Ajax supporters at full-time when the incident surrounding his shirt occurred.
Initial reports suggest Antony wanted to give his shirt to a young fan but when he was not paying attention, a man grabbed the shirt and ran off into the distance.
ESPN posted a GIF of the moment on their official Twitter feed with the caption: "Pay attention, because before you know it your shirt is gone."
It certainly picked up plenty of reaction online.

Antony, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United of late, recently praised manager Erik ten Hag, who has been strongly linked with the job at Old Trafford.
"Every player under his guidance becomes a better footballer through his training," Antony told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. "Since my arrival, he has given me a lot of confidence and believed in what I can do. I am grateful to him for that. I respect him very much."

Ten Hag, meanwhile, responded to rumours of a potential move to United last week, and was asked if he had been practicing English ahead of potentially managing in the Premier League.
Asked if the reports of him learning English are true, the 52-year-old smirked. "No, that (report) is not true!" he said.
"We (already) talk English at the club because there are a lot of foreign players in Holland and they are already educated in English so (it makes sense)."
