Manchester United winger Antony has appeared on Brazilian TV to deny allegations of assault.

Antony spoke to Brazilian network SBT as he faces accusations from his ex-girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin and two other women.

Gabriela has alleged Antony attacked her while she was pregnant and left her fearing for her life while they were in an on-off relationship.

When asked if he had assaulted any woman, Antony said: “Never. I never have and I never will.”

He added: “[Violence towards women] is totally wrong, 100 per cent wrong.

“I have a mother, a sister. I would never want this to happen to them.”

Another woman, Ingrid Lana has claimed in a television interview she was pressured by Antony to have sex while on a business trip to England last year.

Lana alleged Antony invited her to his house and pushed her against a wall which led to her banging her head.

“He tried to have a relationship with me and I didn’t want to,” Lana claimed in the interview.

“He pushed me against the wall and I hit my head. My purpose was just business. Arriving there at his invitation, I realised he had ulterior motives.”

Asked about Lana’s accusation, Antony said in the interview on Friday: “Negative. I’m 100 per cent certain that I never touched any woman. 100 per cent. I am certain.

“I will produce the proof and people will understand. They will see the truth.”
