“I’m very grateful to God, and to a teammate I talk to a lot, Diogo Dalot,” Antony told TNT Sports Brazil after the Liverpool win.

“He’s a guy who has helped me a lot too. So, as I said, even though I wasn’t playing in many games or playing little, I kept working and he always, Dalot, always told me, keep doing the right things, things will happen, it’s all a process. And only I know how painful this process was and still is for me.

“As I said, everything I’ve been through, I’m still going through. So, I’m very grateful to God for the opportunity to be doing the right things and to have a result today. Talk about what you’ve been through and are still going through.”

Antony also clarified the latest situation surrounding the investigations.

“Regarding the investigation, it’s still in the hands of the lawyers, they’re dealing with it. But regarding that, my head is calm because I know the truth, I know my truth too.
