Speaking to the The Athletic, the Ajax boss bossed noted that the club didn't want to see Antony go but couldn't keep him after a huge bid from United.

“And Antony? “Still young, still potential," he told The Athletic. "We would have liked to keep him here one year longer, there was not a dire need to sell him, we had money in the bank."

"But the fee got so high. We challenged United to go as far as possible. They have a potential world star.”
