Manchester United have been desperately missing the services of their right-wing attacker, Antony.
Since coming off at half-time against Sheriff in the Europa League, the Brazilian has not played for the Red Devils again in the following matches against Real Sociedad, West Ham and the two Aston Villa qualifiers.
Antony was sidelined with injury, although it is unclear what type of injury.
A shocking video recently surfaced which cast further doubt on the United star’s injury. In the video, an ecstatic Antony is seen sliding down a slide before he gleefully runs back for another round.
The video prompted many to question the attacker’s involvement with the Red Devils after a report indicated that national team head coach Tite had asked his players to fake injuries with their clubs to ensure their chances of playing. in Qatar.
Speculation about the nature of Antony’s injury has been fueled by comments from Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar.
UOL via SportWitness reports that Lasmar has been in daily contact with United and the player could suddenly be ready to play Fulham tomorrow.
Lasmar said of Antony’s miraculous recovery: “Our expectation is that he is already recovered and free to train at our performance.”
SportWitness states: “It is stated that the player’s staff believe he could be in the squad for the game against Fulham at the weekend.”
“The 22-year-old is developing very well and should be fit when the team meets on Monday.”
Fulham will be United’s last game before the players stop in preparation for the World Cup.
Hopefully, Antony is deemed fit for tomorrow’s match and can play a part in what will turn out to be a tricky clash at Craven Cottage.
