Antony will return to Manchester United training as police inquiries continue

Manchester United forward Antony will resume training and be available for selection from next week.

Manchester United announced on Friday that Antony has returned to Manchester and will resume training with the club. He will be available for selection from next week.

Antony stayed in Brazil following a leave of absence to deal with domestic abuse allegations. The club says he attended a voluntary interview with Greater Manchester Police on Thursday. He will continue to cooperate with ongoing police investigations.

A club statement 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 has denied the accusations made by three women, including his former partner Gabriela Cavallin. The Brazil international has not been charged with an offence in Brazil or the UK.

The 23-year-old Antony will not be available for the Premier League match against Crystal Palace on Saturday
