And has urge the club to get rid of him and the Coach.


Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole has recommended that manager Erik ten Hag should offload Brazilian winger Antony and utilize the funds from the sale to acquire Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise. Antony’s high-profile transfer from Ajax to Manchester United in the summer of 2022 for €95 million has not lived up to expectations, with the winger failing to register a goal or assist in 22 appearances across all competitions this season.

Expressing his opinion on the matter, Cole asserted that Antony should be sold, and the proceeds from his departure could be reinvested in signing Michael Olise. In an interview with Betfred, Cole questioned the justification for Antony’s hefty price tag, stating his uncertainty about the winger’s strengths. Comparing Olise to Antony, Cole believes the former would be a significant upgrade for Manchester United, describing him as direct, creative, goal-scoring, and willing to take on opponents.

Cole acknowledged Dwight Yorke’s recent comments expressing sympathy for Antony but emphasized his own reservations about the young winger’s performance and the substantial amount paid for his services. If the potential transfer of Olise materializes in the summer, Cole believes it could positively impact Manchester United, steering the team in the right direction.

Despite Olise’s injury concerns over the past few seasons, Cole remains unfazed, viewing injuries as inherent to the sport. He praised Olise’s talent, highlighting his success at Reading and Crystal Palace, and emphasized that, at just 22 years old, the player has become an integral part of the latter’s squad.

While recognizing that selling Antony could be a prudent decision, Cole acknowledged the challenge of finding suitors for the struggling winger, especially considering his underwhelming performances at Old Trafford. Even if potential suitors emerge, the likelihood of recouping a significant portion of the substantial transfer fee invested in Antony remains uncertain.

Looking ahead, Manchester United faced a 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in their recent Premier League fixture. The team is set to participate in the fourth round of the FA Cup against Newport County on January 28, aiming to rebound from their previous result. Subsequent league clashes with Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United will follow, with the Premier League and FA Cup becoming pivotal in defining the season for Erik ten Hag’s side after their exits from the Champions League and EFL Cup. A successful campaign, marked by FA Cup triumph and a top-four league finish, would still be considered respectable for Manchester United.
