Manchester United legend Andy Cole has hit out at Manchester United’s Brazilian star Antony.

Signed for big money from Ajax last year, Antony has struggled to live up to expectations.

Cole has said that the Brazilian is an average player who’s also selfish and unproductive.

“He would drive me absolutely mad,” Cole told Sky Sports.

“He’s an individual, we all know he’s very left-footed, he’s an individual who never goes to the right-hand side so as a centre-forward, if you’re making a run to the near post you know you’re never going to get it.

“He’s going to check back, you’re not sure when he’s going to put it in the box.

“He doesn’t score enough goals for me, he doesn’t create enough chances for his teammates. So you look at that and say, ‘okay, what are you giving?’. That’s what you’re expecting from him.

“They’ve spent a hell of a lot of money on him, the manager’s backed him and he’s found it really, really tough.”
