Manchester United Send Greenwood Out of Contract With Anthony After Alleged Dating Violence
Manchester United (Man Utd, England), which has been in trouble due to the controversy over Mason Greenwood's (Getafe) 'dating violence', has decided to exclude winger Anthony, who has been accused of similar issues, from playing for the time being.
The Manchester United club announced on its website on the 10th (local time), "Anthony has decided to postpone his return to the squad until further notice in order to take legal procedures related to his allegations."
He added, "The club is against acts of violence and abuse. 온라인카지노
It is important to protect all parties involved in this incident."
On the 4th, it was revealed through the Brazilian news portal UOL that Anthony's ex-girlfriend revealed that he had been assaulted at a hotel in Manchester, England in January, and that a police investigation surrounding him was ongoing.
Antoni claimed his innocence through social media, but the Brazilian Football Association excluded him from the list of international matches (matches between national teams) in September.
Subsequently, his team, Manchester United, was also classified as not having a military history, making it difficult for Anthony to step on the field until the charges are confirmed through investigative agencies or judicial authorities.
Antony, a winger who played for the Brazilian national team at last year's Qatar World Cup, is known to be a player that coach Eric Tenhag strongly requested the club recruit.
Accordingly, Manchester United paid a record transfer fee of 100 million euros (about 143 billion won) in August last year to bring Anthony from Ajax (Netherlands).
He has appeared in four regular league games this season, but has yet to score any offensive points.
Previously, Manchester United decided to part ways after much deliberation on the 21st of last month as striker Greenwood, born in 2001, became controversial after receiving similar charges.
Last year, a woman who was in a relationship with Greenwood shared on social media a photo of her bruised body parts saying she had been assaulted and a voice memo showing her being forced to have sex.
Greenwood, who was arrested on charges of attempted rape and assault due to this incident, almost stood up in court, but the prosecution withdrew the indictment when the 'key witness', presumed to be the victim, suddenly refused to testify, making it difficult to prove guilt.
As the legal issues disappeared, Manchester United's leadership pushed for the return of Greenwood, a promising player who had been with him since his youth days, but withdrew in the face of strong backlash from inside and outside the club.
Manchester United, which finished third last season and returned to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) qualification after one season, is struggling in the early stages of the new season amidst domestic and foreign difficulties.
With 2 wins and 2 losses in 4 games, they are in 11th place.
The scoring power (5 goals), which is less than half of the 1st and 2nd place teams Manchester City (4 wins) and Tottenham Hotspur (3 wins, 1 draw, 11 goals), seems to be holding them back.
