Ajax has still given permission for Antony's participation in the Olympic Games.

The Brazilian was initially not allowed to travel to Tokyo from trainer Erik ten Hag, but according to

VI

and

De Telegraaf

, he returned to a good conversation.

The 21-year-old attacker therefore misses Ajax's complete preparation.

The Olympic tournament starts on July 22.

Ajax will open the new season on August 8 with a match against PSV for the Johan Cruijff Scale.

The day before, the final of the Olympic football tournament in Tokyo is scheduled.

At the Tokyo Olympics, Brazil has been placed in a group with Germany, Ivory Coast and Saudi Arabia.

The South American country is defending the 2016 Olympic title. The Netherlands is not represented at the men's tournament.

Antony made the switch from São Paulo to Ajax for 15.75 million euros last year and scored ten goals and ten assists in 46 games for the capitals.

He won the national title and the KNVB Cup with the team of coach Erik ten Hag.
