Reds Devils legend Paul Scholes labelled the Brazilian a ‘clown’ after he flaunted the skill move with the score at 0-0 during the match, which Manchester United went on the win 3-0 thanks to goals from Diogo Dalot, Marcus Rashford and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Antony took to social media on Friday to double down on his expressive style of play, insisting that he ‘won’t stop’ doing what helped him secure his £85.5million move to Old Trafford this summer.

Erik ten Hag hooked Antony off at half-time but did not explicitly reveal after the match whether or not it was a direct result of his showboating.

When asked on BT Sport whether the substitution was made for that reason, Ten Hag replied: ‘More or less planned. If we are up, I wanted to see Cristiano and Marcus Rashford close together on the right side and that’s one of the reasons.

‘I thought Garnacho was playing quite well on the left side and he had good tempo dribbling. It was more or less planned.’

Scholes slammed the Brazilian’s behaviour after the match, labelling him a ‘clown’ and insisting that he ‘needs that knocked out of him’.

The ex-United midfielder said: ‘I think it frustrated him. I just don’t know what it achieves. I love a little bit of showboating, and entertainment but at least get the pass right.

‘Does that do anything for anybody? Does that do anything for himself? I’d have to ask him – even at 4-0 up what does that do for you? 

‘This country, any country even Brazil. They don’t want to see that do they? I like to see skills and entertainment, I just don’t think it’s skill or entertainment it’s just being a clown.’

Antony and Manchester United prepare to take on West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday.
