I used to watch them on YouTube – Antony reveals his three idols in football

Manchester United winger, Antony, has revealed his three idols in football.

Antony named his Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the three football stars he used to look up to as a teenager.

The Brazilian star also revealed that he used to idolize two of his countrymen, Ronaldinho and Neymar.

According to him, he used to watch the trio on YouTube while growing up as a teenager.

“I learned all the tricks from the [football] legends. Ronaldinho, Neymar, Cristiano [Ronaldo]. I used to watch them on YouTube, thanks to my ‘uncle’ Toniolo,” Antony told The Players’ Tribune.

“He [Toniolo] used to let me steal his WiFi so I could go on YouTube and get my football education,” he added.

Antony joined Man United from Ajax in the summer transfer window.
