'I’d be pulling my hair out': Andy Cole explains why Antony is hard to play with for strikers
"If I was a striker in this Manchester United team and saw Antony was playing on the right wing, I’d be pulling my hair out because I know that I will never get a cross my way on his weak right foot," former Man United striker Andy Cole told King Casino Bonus.
"If I was making a run into the box, I would not expect anything because he always chops back on to his left foot.
"The game has changed now and what managers want from wingers is different."
In his first season at Man United, Antony has provided only one assist in the FA Cup win over Reading which may prove Cole's point.
He has been on the scoresheet more often, finding the target six times across all competition - not too bad, although a lot more will be expected from him in the next season.
