Manchester United forward Antony has been dropped from the Brazil national team amid an ongoing domestic abuse allegation made by his ex-girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin.
Antony’s ex Gabriela Cavallin reported the Man United forward to the authority and laid her case.
She recalled a time when Antony tried to hit her with a glass in the face and how the former Ajax winger threatened to kill her and kill himself too.
“Antony locked the door of the house and wouldn’t let me go out, and I had my finger open, all hurt,” Gabriela told UOLE Sport.
“He broke my things, took my passport. His mother and stepfather even trapped him inside the football court, he had a football court inside his living room, surrounded by a fence.
“He was upset, trying to get out of the court in any way, throwing a football at me, throwing a cell phone at me. He said he was going to kill me, that he was going to kill himself.”

Antony was quick to defend himself as he took to Instagram to prove his innocence.
The ongoing accusation has left the Brazil national team no choice but to drop the left-foot winger after they were made aware of the allegations.
CBF statement reads: “In light of the facts which came to light on Monday (04/09) concerning Manchester United player Antony, which must be investigated, and in order to safeguard the alleged victim, the player, the Brazilian national team and the CBF, the organization informs that the athlete has been removed from the Brazilian national team.”
