Sancho and Manchester United stars send messages to Antony after injury
Manchester United winger Antony has received messages of support from the likes of Jadon Sancho, Lisandro Martinez and Harry Maguire after sustaining a serious injury vs Chelsea.
Antony was carried off the pitch on a stretcher just before the half-hour mark following a fair challenge by defender Trevoh Chalobah. The Brazilian looked to be in tears as he left the field of play and is now a big doubt for the Reds' FA Cup final on June 3.
While his condition is not yet known, Erik ten Hag gave an ominous verdict on Antony's welfare. "I don’t know [how bad it is]," he explained.
"Everyone has seen he came off. I can tell you that it’s serious but we have to wait a minimum 24 hours and then we know probably more about the status of his injury."
Despite United's victory, which secured Champions League football for next season, plenty of Antony's teammates have shown their concern and sent messages of support on social media. Posting on Instagram, Sancho wrote: "My brother, get well soon."
This was followed by Martinez, who suffered a season-ending injury against Sevilla, adding: "Strength brother. You will come back stronger."
United full-back Diogo Dalot added his own message to Instagram, posting: "With you brother," while the Reds' captain Maguire sent a praying emoji to the stricken star. Antony's injury will lead to a rejigging of the squad ahead of their final match of the Premier League season at home to Fulham on Sunday.
The most likely change would see Marcus Rashford come into the starting XI as a straight swap for Antony.
