Brazil delists Antony amid accusations of domestic violence


Brazil have dropped Antony from their squad for the upcoming international matches. He was replaced by Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus.

The Manchester United star is being investigated for the alleged assault of his ex-girlfriend, Gabriela Cavallin.

The influencer filed police reports against the Red Devils player in both Brazil and England and investigations are ongoing.

Brazilian news outlet UOL published new allegations against the 23-year-old Brazilian footballer, including WhatsApp footage and photographs of injuries.


The Brazilian medium revealed that Antony headbutted and punched Cavalli while she was pregnant.

In June, Cavallin accused Antony of domestic violence and threats during a TV interview in which she claimed the footballer wouldn’t let her out of their home.

Antony responded with a statement on his Instagram account, saying he was ‘falsely accused’ and had ‘suffered in silence’ while police investigations continued.
