Club career

IF Gnistan

Antman joined IF Gnistan from Tikkurilan Palloseura in the winter 2018.[1] Antman was the first player from Gnistan to be sold to a foreign club. He played 7 games for the club and scored one goal before he left.

FC Nordsjælland

On 27 September 2018 IF Gnistan announced, that they had sold Antman to FC Nordsjælland for an undisclosed fee that could increase further.[1] The deal was completed on the last day of the summer transfermarket. Antman had earlier already been on a trial at the club and did actually also play an hour for the reserve team of Nordsjælland in May 2018, where he also scored a goal.[2] The reserve team won the game 4-2 and won the reserve team league with that victory.

Antman's first senior experience was on 16 February 2019, where he sat on the bench for the whole game against Hobro IK in the Danish Superliga. He got his official debut for FC Nordsjælland on 30 March 2019 in the first game of newly appointed manager Flemming Pedersen. Antman started on the bench and came on the pitch replacing Mohammed Kudus with three minutes left, in a 0-0 draw against FC Midtjylland in the Danish Superliga.[3]

In February 2019, first team manager Kasper Hjulmand revealed, that many big clubs was chasing Antman before he chose to join FC Nordsjælland.[4] On 20 August 2019, Antman extended his contract with Nordsjælland until June 2024.[5]
