In an interview given to the Brazilian television channel SBT this Friday, the footballer assured that although her relationship with Cavallin was “turbulent”, he “never touched her.”

In that sense, the footballer gave a brief account of the events: “I left training in the morning, got in my vehicle and headed to the hotel where she was staying. We had lunch together, as usual. We chat, as usual. All quiet (…) I told him I had to leave and at that moment there was an argument.

“I was sitting on the bed. She grabbed my face. She turned around. She broke a cup, she broke a plate… she came towards me. At that moment I hugged her. I didn’t squeeze it, I didn’t do anything. I told him: ‘Calm down, calm down, calm down,’” the footballer argued.

On the other hand, The Brazilian media Extra reported this Thursday that a woman named Rayssa de Freitas filed a police report against Antony on May 20, 2022. after allegedly being attacked in an encounter with the player. Another woman, identified as Ingrid Lana, also alleged that Antony tried to have sexual relations with her and pushed her against a wall when he visited her home in England almost a year ago.

When asked about these last two accusations, Antony flatly denied them, claiming to be “a100% sure that I never touched any woman (…) I’m sure. I will present the proof and people will understand. They will see the truth.”
