Carabao Cup: You make me think a lot – Neville tells Man Utd star to emulate Mahrez

by James Davies


Former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville has told Manchester United’s big-money signing, Antony to emulate Manchester City winger, Riyad Mahrez.

He said the Brazil international is now very predictable.

Antony was one of the few Ajax players that followed Erik ten Hag to Manchester United in the summer.

United were made to cough out £86m by Ajax and the Brazilian went on producing five goals across his opening 20 games for the club.

Although the 22-year-old played a key part in United’s second goal in the 3-0 win over Forest, Antony is still searching for his first official assist for the Red Devils.

Neville feels the Brazilian needs to replicate City star Riyad Mahrez.

Algerian forward Mahrez has netted 10 goals and produced four assists across 25 games so far this season.

“I’ve been thinking a lot about Antony in the last few days,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“He needs to develop that Mahrez side of things to be able to go both ways.

“At the moment, he’s still a little bit predictable in trying to always force it onto his left foot.”
