Manchester United and Brasil released statements as Antiny got dropped following abuse allegations.
The Manchester United winger was one of the top stars in the current Manchester United team.
He had made the right wing position his own since his move from Ajax last season.
Surprisingly, Antony has faced abuse allegations from her past relationship.
The rumour started as a joke before the Brazil national team said Antony was dropped.
The statement left fans divided on social media as some imagined it was all made up story.
“Manchester United players focus more on beating their partners than their opponents.”

UPDATE ON THE MASON GREENWOOD SITUATION
A few years ago, Mason Greenwood found himself in a similar case.
England and Manchester United immediately dropped him before the police let him go free.
Since then, efforts to bring him back were made, but they all failed, and he moved to Getafe.
Surprisingly, everything seemed to change in Spain as Greenwood got the love from fans.
They came in numbers to see him in training, and he has a chance to play when the international break ends.
