“Criminal”, “Selfish” – Media rip into Man Utd star for what he did right before Martial’s goal

Posted by

The winger for Manchester United, Antony, received criticism for not giving the ball to Anthony Martial before this afternoon’s opening goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

What was the outcome of Man United vs. Wolves?

Alejandro Garnacho and Anthony Martial both scored goals to give Man United a crucial three points in their pursuit of the top four spots in the Premier League this afternoon.

With just three games remaining in the current campaign and a trip to Bournemouth coming up next, the success puts the Red Devils four points ahead of Liverpool in fifth place and puts them in a great position to qualify for the Champions League for the upcoming campaign.

With Antony providing the assist, the Frenchman opened the goal just past the halfway point. However, according to journalist Alex Turk, if the winger had been more ready to transfer the ball to his colleagues, United might have been up 3-0 at the break.

The United Stand fan channel’s Beth Tucker echoed Mark Goldbridge’s criticism of the Brazilian’s failure to allow the striker to go through on goal, saying: “Antony not passing that to Martial is actually criminal.” If individuals around him act selfishly all the time, the number 9 won’t score.

How did Antony perform against the Wolfpack?

The 23-year-old eventually made up for his mistake by playing a significant role in the opening goal, but it was still an unimpressive display because he missed one significant opportunity by headed over when he was unmarked six yards away.

While there were some positive parts to the Brazil international’s performance—he completed all four of his dribble attempts, the greatest percentage of any United player—and he also created one significant chance—he must stop squandering such good opportunities going forward.

Although Man United did not ultimately pay the price for Antony’s poor forward judgement tonight, they might have under better circumstances, and Erik ten Hag will be hoping for a stronger performance from him next weekend against Bournemouth.
