Antony permitted to return to Man Utd training and made available for selection despite ongoing assault investigation

EPL: I'm not afraid - Antony speaks up amid domestic violence allegations

Antony, who plays as a winger for Manchester United, is back in the squad and will resume training and playing in matches.

This comes after he met with the police to address assault allegations made against him.

The club had granted him a leave of absence on September 10 following accusations of violent behavior made by his former girlfriend, Gabriela Cavallin, as well as two other women from Brazil who had similar claims.

Antony, vehemently denying all allegations made against him, had been staying in Brazil until his return to Manchester on Tuesday.

He voluntarily attended a five-hour interview with the police on Thursday and was allowed to leave at the conclusion of the meeting without any restrictions.

He also provided evidence to support his denial of the allegations.

The fact that Antony has not been arrested or charged in either Brazil or the UK seems to contribute to his reintroduction into the squad.

However, the club will continue to monitor the situation closely while police investigations are ongoing.

A statement from United on Friday read: “Since allegations were first made in June, Antony has cooperated with police inquiries in both Brazil and the UK, and he continues to do so.

“As Antony’s employer, Manchester United has decided that he will resume training at Carrington, and be available for selection, while police inquiries proceed. This will be kept under review pending further developments in the case.

“As a club we condemn acts of violence and abuse.  We recognise the importance of safeguarding all those involved in this situation, and acknowledge the impact these allegations have on survivors of abuse.”

Antony is due to train on Friday and could face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.
