Manchester United have confirmed Antony’s return to the club has been postponed in light of assault allegations made by his former partner.
The Brazil winger is under investigation in Manchester and Sao Paulo following claims of attacks dating back to 2022. United confirmed they were aware of the situation as Antony was dropped from the Selecao squad for September internationals.
Antony appeared on Brazilian television to deny the allegations, made by former girlfriend Gabriel Cavallin, claiming he holds evidence of his innocence.
Man Utd have released a further update, stating: “Manchester United acknowledges the allegations made against Antony.
“Players who have not participated in international matches are due back in training on Monday. However, it has been agreed with Antony that he will delay his return until further notice in order to address the allegations.
“As a club we condemn acts of violence and abuse. We recognise the importance of safeguarding all those involved in this situation, and acknowledge the impact these allegations have on survivors of abuse.”
Two other women have also made statements claiming Antony was violent towards them.
