"Ten Hag brings out the best in me" - new Man Utd …
Manchester United's Brazilian winger Antony has sparked a huge debate amongst football fans after he whipped out his trademark spin trick during his team's 3-0 Europa League win over Sheriff Tiraspol.
The 22-year-old who was signed from Ajax in the summer has made a promising start to life at Old Trafford scoring 3 goals in his first 11 games for the club.
However, the young star has a penchant for trickery and pulled off his double-rotation spin against the team from Transnistria after 37 minutes while the score was still at 0-0. Although he managed to effortlessly pull off the maneuver what happened afterward left a lot to be desired as he put his pass straight out of play for a goal kick.
Whereas others found it "disrespectful" or "pointless".
\u201c\ud83d\udde3\ufe0f \u201cHe would be getting a fleeing. It\u2019s disrespectful, I don\u2019t know what he\u2019s thinking? Unnecessary nonsense. He gave the ball away two seconds later, kicked it straight out so come on... Grow up a bit.\u201d \n\nIan Holloway on the trademark Antony spin.\u2122\ufe0f\ud83c\udde7\ud83c\uddf7\u201d
\u201c"It's not skill or entertainment, it's just being a clown!" \ud83d\ude02\n\nPaul Scholes and Owen Hargreaves joke about who wants to see Antony's showboating antics... \ud83d\udc40\n\n\ud83c\udf99\ufe0f @julesbreach\u201d

Others just thought it was hilarious.
\u201cHopefully Antony does an extra couple of spins at the weekend just to top it off\u201d
