Manchester United and Brazil star Antony crashed his car


After Manchester United‘s 1-0 victory over Wolves on New Year’s Eve, striker Antony crashed his $100,000 BMW on a highway, leaving him shook up, according to sources.

The 22-year-old allegedly drove his BMW X6 through roadblocks on the M56 near his Hale, Greater Manchester, home when it was “soaked,” according to The Sun.

The £80 million winger “passed a breathalyser test” before his car was recovered, and the newspaper reported that “no one else was engaged in the incident.” Police were called to the area.

The Sun‘s source reported:

‘It was dark and wet and he made an error of judgement.

‘He was shook up but thankfully no one else was involved and he wasn’t injured.’

After being left out of Man United’s 3-0 victory against Bournemouth on Tuesday, Antony, who joined the club this summer, was reinstated on Friday and scored the opening goal in the Red Devils’ 3-1 victory over Everton.

In the days preceding the match against the Toffees, the forward was reportedly also spotted driving a Lamborghini Aventador, according to The Sun.

The Brazilian, who has four goals in 15 games while donning the red shirt, said after the game that he had to deal with a “very difficult situation” and that he “had a shock.”

He stated:

‘I’m very grateful to God to put that behind me now, grateful to the club, to the players and to the manager. Everyone stayed by my side.

‘It was a really, really difficult moment for me days ago. But God has been always on my side and I’m grateful also to my family. I dedicate this goal to them, it’s in moments like these that you know who really loves you.’

The former Ajax forward, who scored for the Red Devils in the fourth minute of the game with a sliding tap-in, also expressed his joy at scoring for the team.

After the game, he spoke with TNT Sports:

‘First of all, it’s a feeling of joy.’

‘I’m happy to score again, especially at home.

‘I’ve set some goals for me this season and it’s good to score as soon as I’ve started to think of personal goals. But, of course, the most important is United’s qualification to the next stage.

‘This is my mind-frame now. I’m 100 per cent focused on honouring the fans and the club. We all know the size of this club and we want to put United back to where it deserves.’
