Manchester United have been accused of covering up Antony’s alledged domestic abuse by the lawyers of his ex-girlfriend, Gabriela Cavallin.

This is according to Metropoles, who claim that reports from Brazil say Antony used staff from Manchester United to “stifle” his alleged attacks.

Antony was accused of domestic abuse by his ex-partner Gabriela Cavallin back in June, although he denies that any physical abuse ever occurred.

It is claimed that in one specific incident, Antony head-butted Cavallin, cutting her scalp. Then, it is described that he grabbed her and threw her hard onto a bet, falling on top of her.

This allegedly caused her breast implants to become dislodged, which then required her to undergo reconstructive surgery.

This is all said to have occurred at the Hyatt Regency Manchester Hotel, where Manchester United players sometimes stay ahead of a fixture.

Cavallin’s lawyers claim that after the alleged attack, Antony left the hotel and called a Manchester United Club employee named Daniele Bertoli to help him. According to Gabriela’s defence, Bertoli is “a kind of concierge, or secretary, who provides all types of support to the players”.

Bertoli is then said to have called the doctors to help Cavallin after the attack, which her lawyers claim was done “with the deliberate intention of hushing up what had happened, and not allowing Gabriela to seek medical help in a hospital or clinic, where she would probably be questioned about what had happened or who had taken her assaulted”.

The lawyers have asked that the club be questioned for their involvement, and have also asked the police to request the images recorded by the hotel’s internal security cameras.

Manchester United released a statement regarding the current accusations which read: “Manchester United acknowledges the allegations made against Antony and notes that the Police are conducting enquiries.

“Pending further information, the club will be making no further comments.

“As a club, we are taking this matter seriously, with consideration of the impact of these allegations and subsequent reporting will have on survivors of abuse.”
