Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs appeared to take a pop at Antony while discussing the impact made by fellow winger Alejandro Garnacho this season. Giggs did not mince his words while discussing his former club’s transfer strategy, which he described as ‘terrible’ on his first public appearance since July last year.

The 50-year-old was cleared of assault allegations against his ex-girlfriend and her sister after the Crown Prosecution Service withdrew the charges. Six months on, Giggs appeared in Ulster Hall last Sunday to discuss his playing days with radio DJ Johnny Hero.

United’s current state of affairs was on the agenda, and the former left-wing extraordinaire was extremely complimentary about mercurial 19-year-old talent Garnacho. “He gets you off your seat,” said Giggs.

But in lavishing the teenager with praise, he also appeared to throw shade on Antony by claiming that one United wide-man in particular was offering considerably less on the pitch, despite having cost the club considerably more off it.

“He’s giving you 10 times more than the other guy that cost so much more money,” Giggs added. “We’ve just recruited terribly for years and years.”

Garnacho cost a measly six-figure fee when United snapped him up from Atletico Madrid’s academy in 2020. Antony, by comparison, set the Red Devils back a whopping £84million, with Erik ten Hag desperate to reunite with the former Ajax star before the deal was sealed 18 months ago.
