Manchester United forward Antony has discussed the intensity of training sessions under Erik ten Hag.
The Brazil international made a €100m move to Man Utd from Ajax at the tail end of the summer transfer window and has made a flying start to life in the Premier League, scoring a wonderful goal against Arsenal on his debut.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Antony has discussed how he’s been able to adapt to the demands of the league and revealed that Ten Hag’s training sessions are ‘very different’ from ones at Ajax:
“Training is very different but I’d prepared for it mentally. I knew how intense it would be as I’ve always followed the Premier League. I knew how intense the games were and have prepared and trained a lot to be at 100 per cent as soon as possible.
“The team are part of an excellent squad so we have got to know each other and established an understanding to reach this level and develop our football,” He added: “We are getting to know each other better each day, game by game, so that this harmony can flow and it all works out.”
Antony also discussed how he’s found living in Manchester, stating: “I’m enjoying it, it’s the first few weeks but I’ve already discovered a few Brazilian restaurants. I went with Casemiro. We’re settling in the city. I’m already adapting well here at the club. The people have made me feel really welcome and I’m feeling at home. We’re settling in well in Manchester.
“I’m really happy to be with friends and working together here and with the Selecao. It’s a great feeling. It actually makes the settling in easier, not just with the team-mates but all the other players have given me a warm welcome and this has really helped me to adapt.”
