Antony dropped from Brazil squad over allegations of domestic violence


Manchester United forward, Antony, has been dropped from the Brazil squad for their World Cup qualifying fixtures.

This comes after fresh allegations made by by his ex-girlfriend, Gabriela Cavallin, were published by UOL in his native country.

In June, Antony released a statement insisting he had been falsely accused by Ms Cavallin of domestic violence.

On Monday, the player said he “trusts ongoing police investigations” to reveal the “truth about my innocence”.

Manchester United are yet to comment on the new allegations.

However, Brazil has taken the decision to replace Antony with Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus.

The Selecao will take on Bolivia and Peru this month.
