Manchester United taking abuse allegations made against Antony seriously
Manchester United are taking seriously allegations of domestic abuse made against forward Antony.
The 23-year-old was dropped by Brazil after accusations of physical aggression on a number of occasions since January towards his former girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin.
Antony, who has made 31 appearances since Cavallin made a complaint to Greater Manchester Police (GMP) in January, has denied the claims.
Manchester United acknowledges the allegations made against Antony and notes that the police are conducting enquiries, said a club statement.
Pending further information, the club will be making no further comments.
As a club, we are taking this matter seriously, with consideration of the impact of these allegations and subsequent reporting will have on survivors of abuse.
