‘A new star is born at Old Trafford’ – Manchester United forward Antony scores on debut against Arsenal before kissing the badge in celebration and receives standing ovation from benched Cristiano Ronaldo

    Manchester United’s £85million signing Antony scored on his debut, breaking the deadlock against Arsenal before kissing the club badge.

    The Brazilian winger opened the scoring in the 35th minute after being found in acres of space by Marcus Rashford, allowing him to simply slip the ball past Aaron Ramsdale.

    It was an easy finish for the Brazilian

    And if the Old Trafford faithful were delighted enough with their new hero, he then reeled away before kissing the badge of a club he’d been trying to join for months.

    The 22-year-old winger had a summer of uncertainty as he was pursued by his former Ajax manager Erik ten Hag, who made multiple bids to try and complete a reunion.

    That eventually came in the closing days of the window with United paying huge money, making Antony the third-most expensive signing in Premier League history.

    Such was Ten Hag’s confidence in his star man, he elected to name him in the lineup in a huge clash against Mikel Arteta’s Gunners, with many expecting him to start on the bench.

    However, the decision quickly proved to be a piece of genius with Antony finding the net, and talkSPORT commentator Alex Crook saying: “A new star is born at Old Trafford!”
