Antony hailed Ten Hag’s influence on his career and revealed his delight at linking up with the Dutchman again at Old Trafford after spending two years working together at Ajax.
“Erik ten Hag is an excellent coach,” Antony told the club’s official website. “I’ve got tremendous respect and affection for him. From the moment I arrived at Ajax he treated me so well and put his faith in me. It’s not by chance I had such a great run of form under him for two years.
“We developed this mutual trust and closeness. He’s a manager I have respect and affection for – when I found out he was moving here, I wished him all the best and all the success he deserves.
“Now I’m alongside him again, I hope to make history, develop and grow further under his management.”
