Man Utd winger Antony investigated by police over claims he 'headbutted and punched' ex-girlfriend
Manchester United and Brazil winger Antony is being investigated by Greater Manchester Police over claims he attacked his former girlfriend.
Gabriela Cavallin claims she was headbutted and punched by Antony in a Manchester hotel room the day after Uniteds 2-1 victory over Manchester City on January 14 that resulted in a cut to her head and a breast implant being damaged.
Cavallin said she received treatment from an English doctor in her room at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Manchester following the alleged attack. The news is the latest controversy to surround United and comes just a fortnight after the club announced Mason Greenwood was to leave the club despite charges of attempted rape, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and controlling and coercive behaviour against Greenwood were dropped by the Crown Prosection Service
In an interview with the Brazilian website UOL, which was published on Monday and included photographs and screenshots of messages, Cavallin also alleged that she suffered a cut finger while trying to protect herself after accusing Antony of throwing a glass cup at her.
