There have even been claims that teammates intentionally failed to pass to Anthony, who was suspended from the Brazilian national team for assaulting his ex-girlfriend.
The Gunners suffered a 1-3 defeat against Arsenal in the fourth round of the 2023-24 Premier League (PL) on Thursday. As expected from a rivalry match, the game was tightly contested. The game was evenly matched, but what looked like it would end in a draw ended in Arsenal’s favor with back-to-back theatrical goals from Rice and Jesus after extra time.
Anthony started the game on the right wing. After a spell at Ajax, Anthony made the switch to the Gunners’ colors last season after being called up by his former mentor, Eric ten Hagh. In his first season, he made 25 appearances, scoring four goals and providing two assists. He’s been a regular this season, but he didn’t make much of an impact in this game.
Anthony has been accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend. Brazilian outlet UOL recently reported that Anthony’s ex-girlfriend, Gabriela Cavallin, was assaulted several times over the course of a year, starting in June 2022. She also alleged that Anthony threatened to throw her out of a moving car.
Anthony’s assaults reportedly left her injured. Kavalin told local Brazilian media that she was assaulted in January at a hotel in Manchester by Anthony, kicking and punching her, and in May, while pregnant, she claimed to have suffered a finger injury.
In response, Antony denied it was true. Antony said on his social media, “I feel the need to speak publicly about the false accusations I’ve become a victim because I respect my fans, friends and family. From the start I took this matter seriously. He also explained it clearly to the police. “We can’t disclose the contents, but the accusation is false,” he said in a lengthy article.
Antony also said, “I can confidently say that the evidence already presented, and more evidence to be presented, shows that I am innocent. Her relationship with her was noisy with insulting language on both sides, but I have never caused any physical damage,” he said, claiming his innocence.
As the controversy intensified, the Brazilian national team removed Antony from the list. The Brazilian national team said in an official 토토사이트 position on the 5th, “We need to investigate the facts related to Manchester United striker Antony. To protect the victim, we announce that the player has been excluded from the team. To replace him, we newly selected Gabriel Jesus, announced that striker Jesus, who plays for Arsenal, has joined in place of Antony.
Manchester United also expressed its position. Manchester United said on the club’s website on the 6th, “The charges against Anthony have been admitted, and the police are currently investigating. The club will not comment further on this until further information is confirmed. We are seriously considering the impact of this problem on the victim,” he said.
In the meantime, there was even a claim that Antony was ignored by his teammates in the previous game. Citing an analysis by British broadcaster BBC on the 6th (Korea Standard Time), the British media “The Sun” reported that Manchester United players seemed to intentionally ignore Antony in the last match against Arsenal. The media said, “Even though Anthony was completely free from the side, Manchester United defenders exchanged the ball only at the back. “Antony was angry to send him a pass,” he claimed.
It is embarrassing for Manchester United. He entered the new season, signaling a revival, but rumors of discord arose between Jaden Sancho and coach Eric Tengh, and he even took on Antony’s problem. I’ve already experienced Mason Greenwood’s private life controversy once. Manchester United, which has a busy schedule to play through the upcoming UEFA Champions League (UCL) and the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup), should resolve the situation as soon as possible.
