Ten Hag about Antony: ‘A great talent’


Erik ten Hag thinks Antony is a great talent. That is what the Ajax trainer says, after the Brazilian’s first group training with the Amsterdammers FOX Sports. Ten Hag also addresses the problem of standard situations now that Hakim Ziyech has left for Chelsea.

“First that it is a great talent,” Ten Hag opens about Antony. “Great ball skills and cleverness, but we shouldn’t put too much pressure on that boy. He has been here for over a week now. He has to adjust quietly to Ajax, the players, the playing style, a new country and a new language. We will see how fast it goes, but that he can play football is undeniable. ”

The Ajax coach therefore sees that the Brazilian can play football well. “It’s a joy to watch. It’s clear.” According to Ten Hag, Antony should not be compared to Ziyech, for example. ‘Antony has its own identity and let’s develop that identity so that it will become a very good player. He has to work hard on this himself and we will support him in that. ”

Standard situations

Ziyech left this transfer period with Ajax. He took the standard situations with the Amsterdammers. Ten Hag already has some names in mind for the corners and free kicks. “I think we have players who can do that. Antony to name just one, Labyad, Martinez has an excellent free kick.
