Manchester United star Antony has displayed his new bleach blonde-white hair ahead of tonight’s Europa League clash with Sheriff. The Brazil international has decided to get a new trim ahead of the match as the Red Devils seek all three points. And, if they win, they’ll boost their chances of topping the group as they look to emerge victorious in the competition this season.
Taking to Instagram, Antony published a selfie with his new blonde and white hair with a caption that read: “Snowing.”
The Brazil international’s crop is normally brown but it seems like he’s now decided to try out something new as he continues to adapt to life in England.
Eyebrows were raised when United forked out a huge £86million to sign Antony from Ajax back in the summer transfer window.
However, the 22-year-old has become instantly popular at Old Trafford and has netted three goals so far in the short time since his arrival.
Antony opened his account for United on his debut, scoring the first goal in a 3-1 win over Arsenal with Marcus Rashford then bagging a brace.

The Brazil star netted a second goal for the club in a 6-3 defeat to Manchester City, superbly curling the ball round Ederson with a memorable consolation.
And Antony scored his third goal for United recently against Everton, cancelling out an opener from Alex Iwobi before Cristiano Ronaldo struck to give his side the victory.
Antony has also endeared himself with some exciting performances so far, his goals aside.
And the United star went viral during Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea, mocking Jorginho after Casemiro struck late on to earn his side a draw.
Former United star Wes Brown has hailed Antony for the impact he’s made at Old Trafford so far, while comparing him to the likes of Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona and Diego Maradona due to his superb left foot.

Ten Hag makes £40m transfer decision at Man Utd
“[Antony’s left foot] is like Messi and Maradona!” he told Top Rated Casino.
“Ultimately, the left foot is a wand, he’s got great skill, great composure.
“You know he’s going to cut in, but I’m telling you, not many people have stopped it yet.
“Arjen Robben is probably the best comparison, he always used to cut in and he rarely went down the line as well.
“But [he’s] just sharp, knows what he’s doing, confident in what he’s doing, and is sometimes difficult to mark.”

Ten Hag, meanwhile, has opened up on his ambitions at United and why they’re capable of winning the Europa league.
“Definitely. But going from one step to the other, the first thing we have to do is win the next game,” he said when asked if it was their aim to top the group.
“That is tomorrow so focus 100 percent on this and don’t look too far ahead because then you lose focus. Focus on one thing – win the next game.
“It’s [only] four games and Europe is obviously different. But I like Europe. I like the European mindset, especially in the last game against Omonia when there was a great atmosphere in the stadium and then at the end when we scored the winner, it was really good to celebrate that, the players with the fans, and I hope we have that as well tomorrow.

“The games in Europe, we all use them to get better, to improve and that is what we have to do.
“We are not satisfied, we are happy with some of our performances, some of our results, but after 24 hours, we keep going and we come to the next one.
“We have to approach every game and see also in this moment where we are in the season.”
United beat Sheriff 2-0 last month, with goals from Jadon Sancho and Ronaldo giving them all three points.
