Dutch are divided on Antony’s ability but agree €100m fee is ludicrous
Manchester United’s new Brazilian had admirers and critics at Ajax but the Netherlands is united in disbelief at the price tagJust who is Antony? A villain? A socialist? A football magician or a crybaby? In the Netherlands people still don’t know after two years watching the Brazilian play for Ajax. But after his switch to Manchester United for €100m (£85.6m) last week, the one thing that they all agree on is that that nine-figure transfer fee is ludicrous.Yes, he is a master football technician, the likes of which we had rarely seen before. But not wanting to play two matches for Ajax and an explosive interview to force a transfer have caused a lot of bad blood here.
