“Man trying so hard to redeem his reputation after the assault thingy” – Netizens mock Antony for his viral apology clip to Galatasaray fans

Antony is being criticised following a string of terrible performances.

Following a dramatic 3-3 draw between Manchester United and Galatasaray, a video of United’s Antony apologizing to Galatasaray supporters went viral, eliciting both favorable and negative comments on social media. This came after Alejandro Garnacho’s ‘Calma’ celebration enraged Turkish supporters after scoring the opening goal.

The youthful Argentine scored United’s first goal in a critical Champions League group-stage encounter against the Turkish giants. However, after scoring the goal, he imitated Cristiano Ronaldo‘s legendary ‘Calma’ celebration in front of the home crowd, angering them. Things were a little crazy until Antony stepped in to calm things down.

The Brazilian winger apologized for the goal celebration of the youthful United attacker. Galatasaray supporters and Turkish media hailed Antony’s sportsmanship, although netizens were less enthusiastic. One ‘X’ user called it that the Brazil and United winger is chasing that ‘Top 10 respect moments of 2023’. Antony’s only hope of winning anything this year, according to the supporters.

Some fans also noted that Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes attempted to restrain Alejandro Garnacho from celebrating the strike in such a manner. Here are some of the reactions of the fans:
