Brazil drop Manchester United’s Antony over domestic violence claims

Manchester United's Antony dropped from Brazil's national team over domestic violence allegations

Manchester United winger Antony has been dropped from Brazil's national team for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Peru. The decision was made following allegations of domestic violence made by Antony's ex-girlfriend, Gabriela Cavallin.

Cavallin has accused Antony of physical assault, including punching her in the chest and threatening to kill her. She has also provided screenshots of WhatsApp messages in which Antony allegedly threatens her.

Antony has denied the allegations, calling them "false and defamatory." He has said that he is the "victim of false accusations" and that he will "prove his innocence."

The Brazilian football federation (CBF) said that it had decided to drop Antony from the squad "in order to protect the athlete's image and the national team." The CBF also said that it would "continue to monitor the case and take appropriate action if necessary."

Antony's replacement in the squad is Arsenal forward Gabriel Jesus. Jesus is a regular starter for Brazil and has scored 19 goals in 53 appearances for the national team.

The allegations against Antony have cast a shadow over his career. He is a talented player who has been tipped for a bright future at Manchester United. However, the allegations could damage his reputation and make it difficult for him to play for Brazil in the future.

The case is still under investigation and it is not yet clear whether Antony will face any charges. However, the allegations have already had a significant impact on his career.

It is important to note that Antony is innocent until proven guilty. However, the allegations are serious and they should be taken seriously. Domestic violence is a crime and it should never be tolerated.
