Manchester United winger Antony has released his first statement since his former partner revealed details of alleged  domestic violence and threats made by the Brazilian.

DJ and influencer Gariela Cavallin filed a report with police earlier this month (June, 2023) in which she accused the 23-year-old of  “domestic violence, threat and bodily injury”.

The report claims that she was allegedly assaulted by Antony on May 20, the same day the winger played for United in a Premier League fixture against Bournemouth.

Since then, Cavallin has opened up on the details even further during an interview with Brazil’s Record TV, in which she said she had first suffered abuse in her home country last year.


In a statement on his Instagram, Antony said: “After submitting my statement at the police station where investigation involving my name is being conducted, I wanted to speak for the first time since I was falsely accused of assault.

“I stayed silent until the moment so that nothing could interfere with the investigation process, but during all those days my family and I suffered in silence. Despite being born and raised in a very needy community, I had never been through a situation similar to this, in which a false assault charge resulted in a preliminary and unfair public judgement on the part of some.

“After the closure of the investigation my innocence will be proven. [I am] certain that justice will prevail and the damage initially caused to my image will be in the past. Thank you to the countless messages of support at this very difficult time.”
