Simon Jordan slams Erik ten Hag over Antony transfer fee
Antony joined Man United last summer in a big-money move
Simon Jordan gave a brutal assessment of Manchester United winger Antony during an explosive rant on TalkSPORT.
Antony moved to Old Trafford last summer for £85.5m and has shown moments of brilliance but ultimately only scored four goals in 25 Premier League appearances this season.
However Jordan has layed into the 23-year-old and United boss Erik ten Hag after the Dutchman cited the club's lack of spending in January despite bringing in £220m worth of players in the summer window.
He said: "Okay, Ten Hag. You should have spent £170m in August and £50m in January, would that have suited you better?
"No you decided to fire your bolt early and spend £220m in the August (summer) window. What have you done with that? One of the huge parts of it was Antony."
"He hasn't got it right to suggest that they've been underinvested in. He spent £220 million!"
"A huge part of it was Antony! He's crap!" 😡

Co-presenter Jim White also referred back to comments made by the former Crystal Palace owner on Antony earlier in the season before Jordan fired back saying: "Because he's c**p. He's £90m worth of c**p.
"He (Ten Hag) spent £220m. What he said was the £220m, thank you I'll have that, but what have you done for me lately.
"None of the reasons why I was unsuccessful in January is down to me. I have not made Antony and he has not delivered outcomes, but I got you to spend £90m on him."
It's expected to be a another busy summer at Old Trafford as Ten Hag continues to try and build his team.
Harry Kane and Declan Rice are the two most heavily linked with moves - the former Ten Hag's rumoured number one target - while names such as Mason Mount are also reportedly under consideration.
