Antony: Manchester United Winger Involved in Motorway Car Crash with his BMW X6
Manchester United summer signing Antony was involved in a motorway car crash on New Year's Eve, reports suggest.
The unfortunate event is understood to have taken place just hours after he was involved in United’s 1-0 Premier League win over Wolves at Molineaux.
According to Metro UK, the Brazilian winger was fortunate to escape unhurt after he smashed his BMW X6 into roadworks on the M56.
The publication adds that the former Ajax youngster was subsequently left out of the team that demolished Bournemouth 3-0 last Tuesday.
However, he returned to action for the Red Devils on Friday when they played Everton in the FA Cup.

The Man United star has since broken his silence after the car crash, describing the incident as a 'shock.'
Speaking after the Everton match, Antony refused to share more details on the crash but insisted that he is now relieved.
