Manchester United’s marquee summer signing Antony has branded Cristiano Ronaldo as ‘the best in the world’.
Antony joined the Red Devils from Ajax for £85.5 million on transfer deadline day, becoming the third most expensive signing in United’s history.
In a recent interview with ManUtd.com, the Brazilian international expressed great admiration for Ronaldo who stayed at Old Trafford after a summer marred with transfer speculation.
He said: “I’ve come to help my teammates. Regardless of age, there’s immense talent in all the players.
“Words can’t describe Cristiano, the best in the world. In just a few days, I’ve learnt a lot from him.
“He has an extraordinary mind and, whenever I talk to him, I take a lot from it.
“I’m sure that we have a strong attack and it’s very promising for the future.
Antony should follow Cristiano Ronaldo’s path to success
Ronaldo moved to Old Trafford at the age of 18.
The Theatre of Dreams gave him a platform to take the world of football by storm.
The global superstar has scored over 800 goals throughout his illustrious career.
Antony is in the early stage of his career, and getting regular advice from Ronaldo will only benefit him.
The 22-year-old has had a great start to life as a United player.
Erik ten Hag handed him his full debut against Arsenal, where he scored the opening goal of the game.
The flamboyant winger is full of tricks and intensity. He has the ability to lift the crowd off their seats with his darting runs and ball control.
Having previously worked with Antony, the Dutch manager will know how to get the best out of him.
Many fans believe that Antony has shades of a young Ronaldo, but only time will tell whether he will be able to reach the success the latter earned at Old Trafford.
