Brentford striker Neal Maupay has mocked Antony on social media for his wild celebrations after Manchester United’s narrow victory over Coventry City in the FA Cup semi-final.

The Red Devils scraped into the final on penalties after throwing away a three-goal lead against their Championship opponents. Antony was widely criticized for showing a lack of class in his celebrations, flaring controversy for cupping his ears to the Coventry players as he wheeled away.

His actions were almost universally condemned on social media given the shame of United almost losing despite being three goals up with 20 minutes remaining. Gabriel Agbonlahor, the former Aston Villa striker, suggested that Antony should be ashamed of himself in a scathing review of his post-match antics.

Ex-Coventry forward Clinton Morrison also took aim at Antony on BBC Radio 5 Live, saying: “He needs to concentrate on himself because he could be playing [in] the Championship next season.” Antony was introduced from the bench in the 66th minute of the match, when United were cruising thanks to goals from Scott McTominay, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes.

They went on to suffer a dramatic collapse as Coventry scored three times before the final whistle to force a period of extra time. Neal Maupay, known for being a wind-up merchant, joined the criticism of Antony’s behavior by insisting that even he thought it was a step too far.

Taking to social media, the Brentford ace said: “Just for the record, not even I would do this.” Our community members are treated to special offers, promotions, and adverts from us and our partners.
