|Antony 'in Consideration' for Champions League Clash, Confirms Ten Hag|
In a recent press conference, Manchester United's manager, Erik ten Hag, shed light on the status of Antony and his potential return to action, stating, "He will be in consideration. We have a final training session, and then we'll make a decision."
Antony's eagerly anticipated return to the pitch may be on the horizon. Ten Hag addressed the situation surrounding the Selecao international's potential involvement in the upcoming Champions League clash against Galatasaray:
After an agreement between Antony and Manchester United that allowed the player to remain in Brazil to address allegations of sexual abuse, the Brazilian winger made his long-awaited return to training with the Red Devils last week.
Notably, Antony was absent from the squad during the Premier League match against Crystal Palace, adding to the woes of the Mancunian club following the Eagles' 1-0 victory.
The 23-year-old winger's last appearance for Ten Hag's side was before the international break when Manchester United faced a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Arsenal on 3rd September."

The Arsenal football squad and its staff find themselves in an unexpected predicament at Luton Airport, where their flight to France, ahead of a crucial Champions League clash against Lens, is facing significant delays due to a relentless storm.
Arsenal is set to take on Lens in their Group B Champions League group stage match at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Wednesday, scheduled for 21:00 CET. Currently, the Gunners top the group with three points, while their French counterparts are in second place, sharing one point with Sevilla.
Mikel Arteta, the Spanish manager of Arsenal, had been slated to hold a pre-match press conference in anticipation of the Champions League fixture. However, both players and staff members are now marooned at Luton Airport, grappling with the disruption caused by the storm.
This brutal weather system has thrown a wrench into Arteta's travel plans, and it is uncertain when he will finally reach his destination in France. Reports suggest that the Arsenal manager might initiate his press conference remotely from the airport, but no specific time has been scheduled for this virtual engagement.
As the 41-year-old manager navigates this unexpected delay, he is likely to field questions about recent injuries plaguing his team, including the status of key players like Bukayo Saka and Declan Rice."
