of ‘100 million euro man’. Anthony moved away from the technique of showing off his feet and used practical techniques for depressurization.
Manchester United won 3-1 against Everton in the 3rd round of the 2022-23 season England FA Cup held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England at 5 am (Korean time) on the 7th. Manchester United continued their upward trend by running seven consecutive victories in all competitions.
Man Utd is making a splash. After the World Cup break, he won all 5 games and rode the updraft properly. Except for the match against Wolverhampton Wanderers (1-0 win), he scored at least multiple goals and conceded only once. In this match, they beat Everton, who were formidable opponents, 3-1 and advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Anthony also regained his energy after a long time. Anthony was called up by manager Eric ten Haag to wear the Manchester United shirt this summer. The transfer fee was 95 million euros (approximately 127.4 billion won) just for the base salary. It was a price that implied Ten Hag’s trust in Anthony and the club’s expectations.안전놀이터
Lately, I haven’t been able to show my skills. Anthony started in two league matches after the World Cup break, but did not show much performance, and did not play at all in the last match against Bournemouth. Regarding this, Anthony explained the reason for his poor performance in the previous games, saying, “I personally went through a hard time” through an interview after the FA Cup victory.
This match has been a boon. Anthony neatly pushed in Marcus Rashford’s accurate cross in the 4th minute of the first half and started scoring after 90 days. Anthony, who relieved the burden on his heart, showed his true value once again by performing well on both sides of the offense and defense.
There were also iconic scenes. In the 35th minute of the second half, after defending the ball from Vitaly Mikolenko’s tackle, Anthony showed his skills by escaping Abdoulaye Ducoure’s pressure with the Marseille turn in a situation where he showed his back.
Practicality has been added to technology. Anthony was hit by the media for his ‘Anthony Turn’ in the Europa League last October. At the time, former Manchester United player Paul Scholes criticized it, saying, “It was an ostentatious individual,” and coach Ten Hag also sent a warning message, saying, “If it’s a trick for cheating, I’ll fix Anthony.”
It is progress in a positive direction. Instead of flaunting his flair, Anthony progressed toward using the right skill at the right moment. Manchester United fans also praised Anthony, such as “It was a skill down to 100 million euros”, “Look at this player’s talent”, and “Man United is back”.
