The police in Sao Paulo and Manchester are currently investigating allegations of torture involving Anthony’s former girlfriend. During the ongoing investigation, some serious new accusations have surfaced. Two additional women have come forward, accusing the young Brazilian forward of mistreatment.
According to reports from the sports media outlet Gol, one of the two female victims is a student, while the other is a banker. Both incidents occurred last year.
Raisa Di Freitas, a student, recounted that in May 2022, Anthony and another woman physically assaulted her in a Sao Paulo nightclub. The injuries were so severe that Freitas had to seek medical treatment at a hospital.
Ingrid Lana, a 33-year-old banker, shared her story with Brazilian media outlet Record TV. She stated that in October 2022, Anthony not only assaulted her but also sexually assaulted her. Anthony, who plays for Manchester United at the club level, has vehemently denied these allegations, just as he did with the accusations made by his ex-girlfriend Gabriela Cavallini.
A few days ago, Gabriela had lodged a complaint that Anthony had physically and mentally abused her at a hotel in Manchester on January 15th of this year. As a result, Brazil excluded him from the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, and Arsenal forward Gabriel Jesus was selected to replace him in the squad.
Manchester United issued a statement, expressing their serious concern regarding the allegations against Anthony. However, they have not yet made a decision regarding his status with the squad or any related actions.
