Though Erik ten Hag is likely to have been disappointed by Man United’s injury-time loss to Brighton and Hove Albion, he refused to condemn one of his players for getting involved in a couple of the game’s flashpoints.
The wide man had taken a swipe at Alexis Mac Allister which sparked a reaction from the Seagulls, and Antony soon found himself squaring up to Lewis Dunk.
Despite that hot-headedness, ten Hag was happy to back his man.
?? “His passion is his strength.”
