Excited Cristiano Ronaldo stands and claps for Antony after scoring on Manchester United debut

Superstar football, Cristiano Ronaldo was left no other options other than to get up and applaud Antony after the newly signed Manchester United forward scored on his debut for the Premier League giants against Arsenal.

Antony was handed his United debut on Sunday, September 4, as the Red Devils hosted in-form Arsenal at Old Trafford.

The former Ajax forward’s involvement in the starting XI forced Ronaldo to settle for a place on the bench as Erik ten Hag made bold calls for the Old Trafford cracker.


The Brazilian winger went on to have a dream debut for the Red Devils as it took him just 35 minutes to open his goal basket for the Premier League giants.

Antony had Marcus Rashford to thank for the goal, as it was the Englishman who set him up for the stunner.

Immediately Antony scored, the cameras panned to Ronaldo, who, at this time, had risen from his seat in celebration.

The 37-year-old had his hands above his head, applauding the Brazilian winger as the rest of the United bench joined in celebration.

Antony was later subbed off shortly after the break, making way for Ronaldo, who was introduced in his place.

While the Portuguese talisman did not find the back of the net, United had Marcus Rashford in place to complete a 3-1 rout for the hosts.
