Manchester United confirm Brazilian winger Antony is to return to training

Brazilian winger Antony of Manchester United will resume training after being accused of domestic violence.

According to what is known, the 23-year-old spoke with Greater Manchester Police on Thursday and was not subjected to any restrictions as a result.

United sources claim that he has offered proof to back up his vehement denials of the accusations.

Both in Brazil and the UK, he has not been detained or charged.

In a statement, United said: “Manchester United, Antony’s employer, has determined that he will resume training at Carrington and be available for selection while police investigations proceed.

Until more information about the case is available, this will be monitored.

Antony is not anticipated to report to practice on Friday and will not be considered for United’s match against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday at Old Trafford.

He has missed four games since being given leave on full pay by United to address allegations made by three different women, including his former partner Gabriela Cavallin.

Cavallin made allegations that Antony assaulted her “with a headbutt” in a hotel room in Manchester on January 15 that were published by the Brazilian news outlet UOL on September 4. This allegedly left Cavallin with a cut head that required medical attention.

Additionally, Cavallin claims that when she was punched in the chest, a silicone breast implant was damaged, necessitating corrective surgery.

Following these two additional accusations, which Antony denies, came from Rayssa de Freitas and Ingrid Lana.

Lana, a 33-year-old banker, claimed in an interview with Brazil’s Record TV that she hit her head when “pushed against a wall” by Antony at his house in Manchester in October last year.

“Since allegations were first made in June, Antony has co-operated with police inquiries in both Brazil and the UK and he continues to do so,” said United.

“As a club, we condemn acts of violence and abuse.
“We recognize the importance of safeguarding all those involved in this situation and acknowledge the impact these allegations have on survivors of abuse.”
