Brazilian forward Antony has been suspended from Manchester United training amid allegations of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend.
This was reported by the press service of the Mancunians.
Manchester United have taken note of the allegations made against Antony. Players who did not participate in national team matches must return to training on Monday. However, the club has agreed with Antony that he will delay his return for some time to deal with the allegations.
As a club, we condemn acts of violence and abuse. We recognize the importance of ensuring the safety of all those involved in this situation, and we understand the impact these allegations have on survivors of violence," the Red Devils said in a statement.
Earlier it was reported that Antoni was expelled from the Brazilian national team amid allegations of domestic violence.
Antony has been playing for Manchester United since last summer. This season, he has made four appearances for the Red Devils.
The forward made his debut for the Brazilian national team in 2021 and since then has played 16 matches, scoring two goals. As part of the Brazilian Olympic team, Antoni won gold at the 2020 Games in Tokyo.
Recently, Manchester United said goodbye to midfielder Mason Greenwood, who was accused of rape. The Englishman was loaned by the Spanish Getafe for one season.
