Manchester United has been plagued by the lack of a successful right-wing player in their starting lineup for the past decade. Despite signing players like Jadon Sancho and Antony, none have been able to make a significant impact. Even the long-term prospects, Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo, have not been trusted and have been sent out on loan. Looking ahead, Michael Olise is being considered as the next potential star to fill the role, but should they have stuck with a former attacker instead?
Next summer, the Red Devils will look to address the position once again, with Michael Olise potentially the next star to attempt to break the curse, but should they have stuck with a former attacker instead?
Both Antony and Daniel James have failed to impress in the right-wing position at Manchester United. Antony, who was signed for a significant fee of £82m, has only managed to score eight goals and provide four assists in 68 appearances. To make matters worse, he has not scored or assisted in any Premier League matches this season. Similarly, Daniel James had a promising start but his game time became limited and he eventually left the club to join Leeds United. Despite their initial promise, both players have struggled to make a lasting impact in the right-wing position at Manchester United.
Over the last year and a half, Antony has failed to live up to the high standards of being a United player since signing for a huge £82m, especially considering he broke into the side with a debut goal against Arsenal.
