EPL: Very unprofessional, I don’t understand it – Hans Nijland slams Man United’s new signing

 Former Groningen general manager, Hans Nijland has slammed Manchester United star, Antony, accusing the Brazil international of being “unprofessional”.

Antony forced his way out of his former club, Ajax after the Dutch champions were reluctant to allow him move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United spent over £82 million to acquire the services of the Brazil winger who reunited with his former boss, Erik ten Hag.

Nijland said that Antony failed to realise that he was under a contract with Ajax, who according to him, had the rights to force him stay whether he liked it or not.

He also suggested that Manchester United lure players to Old Trafford where they earn a lot more money.

“The club has every right to hold you to it. Don’t forget the influence of agents, huh?” Nijland said on the Voetbal Primeur podcast.

“As an agent, you only need one Antony and you are a millionaire, it’s that simple.

“The pressure is huge, but I think it’s very unprofessional from players. I don’t understand it at all.”

After his unveiling at Old Trafford, the Brazilian apologized to Ajax fans for the manner he left the club, but insisted it was the right decision for him.
