While Manchester United are preparing the announcement of Antony’s signing from Ajax, their manager Alfred Schreuder, made an appearance on Ziggo Sport TV show, where he was accompanied by Ajax’s and football legends like Ruud Gullit and Marco van Basten. But when the former footballers asked Alfred about Antony, he let his frustration be known.

“Of course, there are multiple people who decide, but I find it bad that this happens, and I get angry about it and think ‘what are we doing’? It frustrates you as a manager. You are a football player damn it, you just have to do your things here”, Schreuder said very angrily because he felt that Antony wasn’t a professional these last couple of weeks.

The Dutch manager also said that he was angry because it’s not good for any club to lose one of its best players just two days before the end of the transfer window. He also said that it will be very difficult for them to sign a suitable replacement for the 22-year-old winger. Some reports are suggesting that Sevilla’s Lucas Ocampos is really close to signing with the Amsterdam club.

Antony is set to be announced as a new Manchester United player today after he completed his medical exams with the club yesterday at Carrington's training center. He has already done photoshoot sessions posing with his new team’s jersey. Once he is unveiled as a Red Devil, he will become the most expensive sell in Eredivisie’s history with a fee of €95m plus €5 in add-ons.

He finally left

The last two weeks were really crazy but played a good part in Antony’s signing going through. The Brazilian winger refused to train with his team after they turned down an €80 million bid from Manchester United, he didn’t train the last two weeks and missed Ajax’s last two games in the Eredivisie. His now former manager was really keen on keeping him at all costs, but in the end, he couldn’t.
