We will keep him and he will stay in. so this squad will go from September until the minimum, January. We will play with this squad for the season”.

The former Ajax manager also said that Antony still isn’t part of the team since the paperwork is still being dealt with: “First we have to sign him! There’s an agreement between the two clubs, but the paperwork is not done, so I cannot go too deep into it”. There were reports suggesting that there was a problem with his Visa. Hopefully, it will be completed on time.
