'That would annoy the hell out of me' – Man Utd star Antony slammed by Rafael van der Vaart for Man City performance | The Sun

FORMER Tottenham man Rafael van der Vaart has slammed Antony's performance in the Manchester derby on Sunday.

The winger scored his second goal in as many Premier League outings for Manchester United.


But his second half stunner wasn't able to prevent his side from slipping to an embarrassing 6-3 defeat to their noisy neighbors.

By the time Antony beat Ederson from distance, United were already 4-0 down following a disastrous first 45 minutes.

Phil Foden and Erling Haaland helped themselves to braces as City ran riot during a blistering first half display from Pep Guardiola's men.

Antony's goal did offer United hope, but Foden and Haaland both completed their hat-tricks soon after to end the possibility of a shock comeback.

But Van der Vaart was far from impressed with his contribution prior to his goal.

He told Dutch radio: "Have you seen Antony play today? He scored a world-class goal.

"But with every pass he received he kept holding the ball underneath his feet while being 4-0 down. That would annoy the hell out of me."
