Antony notched his inaugural goal of the season against Burnley and marked the occasion with an unconventional celebration.

In the realm of Manchester United, Antony’s journey has been less than stellar, finding himself sidelined under Erik ten Hag’s management.

Despite his struggles to justify his hefty £85 million price tag, Antony’s performance against Burnley garnered some praise, earning him the title of man of the match among Red Devils fans.

Seizing an opportunity in the 75th minute, Antony capitalized on a loose ball from Sander Berge, charging towards the Burnley goal. Despite his precarious balance, the Brazilian managed to unleash a shot, finding the bottom right corner of the net.

In a moment of jubilation, Antony’s celebration took an unexpected turn as he approached the cameraman, grasping a Sonic the Hedgehog toy and raising it aloft.

The rationale behind this peculiar act? Antony chose to honor his son’s fondness for Sonic the Hedgehog, while also paying tribute to his soon-to-arrive daughter, Lavinne, whom his wife is currently expecting.
