antonia go aheadThe 23 year was one of the stars for Go Ahead last season as they survived relegation in their first season back in the Eredivisie. Antonia, who scored 22 goals in 96 games for Go Ahead Eagles in three years, has signed a three year deal with the Green and White Army

The Eagles wanted the former Den Haag youngster to sign a new contract but the winger wanted to experience a new challenge. This is what the President Edwin Lugt said to the Senator,

“He has been here three years and now wanted to take the next step in his career. Actually, we’d rather keep him for a year, even though he could then leave (For free)”

There have been reports that the Eagles will get a Groningen player included in the deal, but that is yet to be confirmed.
