However, the Brazilian winger decided to give an interview to Mike Verweij from De Telegraaf, so he could speak about his future.

When he was asked if he could give any guarantees that he will still be at Ajax at the end of the month, he admitted that there’s a possibility of leaving: “No, to be perfectly honest, I can’t. What I can say is that I want to come to the right decision with my family, business partners, and Ajax, which is good for everyone. In the end, God determines my future”.

The former Sao Paulo footballer also said that he is very happy at Amsterdam, and could end up staying: “I am very happy at Ajax. I have a contract until 2025 and I will give everything for this beautiful club every second. If we all decide that I will stay here, then I know that this is the best thing for me and the club. It’s not like I have to leave”.

However, the 22-year-old admitted he has been watching his former manager Erik ten Hag, matches in England: “He has been super important to me. I am grateful to him and wish him all the best. I always cheer for Erik after working so closely together. I have not been able to celebrate or cheer for him as he got no points yet. I couldn’t until now anyway and that makes me sad”.

He believes in Erik ten Hag

Antony didn’t confirm he is staying or leaving, but he did say that he is confident that the Dutch manager will turn around the Red Devils' luck: “Manchester United will improve at his hand. He has proven that his method works. Now I am focusing on playing football and have put all other matters in the hands of my agents and my brother. They will advise me on what’s best”.
