    Manchester United have released a statement after Greater Manchester Police launched a probe into Antony.

    Antony has been accused by his former girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin of attacking her in a Manchester hotel room the day after United beat Manchester City 2-1 in January this year.

    The Brazilian has denied the allegations.

    In a statement, United said: "Manchester United acknowledges the allegations made against Antony and notes that the Police are conducting enquiries. 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."

    Gabriela told Brazilian outlet UOL that the alleged attack left her with a cut to her head and a breast implant being damaged.

    She has also alleged that Antony threatened to attack her while she was pregnant. Gabriela has also claimed Antony attacked her multiple times between June 2022 and May 2023.

    On Monday, Greater Manchester Police said: “Greater Manchester Police is aware of the allegations made and enquiries remain ongoing to establish the circumstances surrounding this report. We will not be commenting any further at this time."

    Antony denied all wrongdoing in a statement on Monday, while his agent, Junior Pedroso, added: “We are silent because there is an investigative process at a police station in Sao Paulo, Brazil."
