The Brazilian winger has hit out at the comments from former Manchester United players this season.
After completing an £85 million move to Old Trafford last year, Antony has failed to hit the heights that many expected of him.
This has led to a cacophony of criticism from fans and pundits including several former Manchester United players like Gary Neville and Rio Ferdinand.
But the former Ajax man has fired back at the comments stating that he “would like to know how these people who make these unfair and malicious criticisms fared in my place.”
“Today, I see criticism coming from former club players and other people in the media, who unreasonably express their opinions and influence thousands of fans, sometimes even when I do not play,” he told United fan channel The United Stand via the Mirror.
“I am silently rebuilding myself, and I know that I will be able to be in my best physical and mental shape and overcome all these barriers and challenges that are in front of me because it has always been like this in my life; no one has ever given me anything, I have always fought hard for everything I achieved! I would like to know how these people who make these unfair and malicious criticisms fared in my place.”
