Man Utd star involved in terrifying car crash

Man Utd star involved in terrifying car crash

He was badly shaken up.

Manchester United star Antony was reportedly involved in a terrifying road traffic incident on a motorway close to his home.

Following the Red Devils' 1-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on New Years Eve, the Brazilian had an accident on the roadworks of the M56 close to his house in Hale, claim the Manchester Evening News.

The winger, who signed for the club last August, did not sustain any injuries in the accident but was left badly shaken, The Mirror reported, while no other individuals were involved.

When Police arrived at the scene, the 22-year-old passed a breathalyser test, with his £100,000 BMW recovered.

Antony was absent for his side's next game against Bournemouth as he recovered from the accident. The Red Devils managed to get the job done without him, winning 3-0 and making it four Premier League wins on the bounce.

The former Ajax player returned to action against Everton in the FA Cup, scoring inside five minutes.

Antony: "It was a really, really difficult moment for me"

After the match, Antony acknowledged it had been a difficult time, thanking God for his safety.

Antony stated: "I also feel relieved as in the last few days I had a shock, but I prefer not to comment on what happened. It was a personal matter, really hard but I’m very grateful to God for putting this behind me now."

"Grateful to the club, to the players, to the manager to everyone that stayed by my side. It’s in the past now, I’m happy to score and I hope to keep going lie this because this is a year of a lot of achievements and wins."

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

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

A source described events to The Sun, stating: "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."
