Wales manager Ryan Giggs has been arrested by Manchester police for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend Kate Greville at their house on Sunday night, British media reported. The 46-year-old was later released on bail on Monday afternoon, pending an investigation.
The Manchester United legend has been questioned on suspicion of causing bodily harm and assault, according to a British daily.
“Police were called at 10.05pm on Sunday to reports of a disturbance. A woman in her 30s sustained minor injuries but did not require any treatment,” the paper quoted a statement from Greater Manchester Police as saying.
“A 46-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of section 47 assault and section 39 common assault.”
The police were called to the former Manchester United winger’s home on Sunday night after receiving reports of a disturbance.
“Mr Giggs denies all allegations of assault made against him. He is cooperating with the police and will continue to assist them with their ongoing investigations,” a spokesperson for Giggs told the media.
The Welsh football association (FAW) noted the allegations against Giggs.
“The FAW is aware of an alleged incident involving the men’s national team manager Ryan Giggs,” it said in a statement. "The FAW will be making no further comment at this current time.”
Wales were due to name their squad on Tuesday for November matches against the United States, Ireland and Finland but have postponed it, reports said.
