Former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs arrested on suspicion of assault

Former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs has been arrested on suspicion of assault.

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) issued a statement on Monday night confirming it is aware of an allegation against national team manager Giggs, first reported in The Sun.

The newspaper say police were called to the 46-year-old’s home on Sunday night after receiving reports of a disturbance.

Giggs was arrested and questioned on suspicion of actual bodily harm and assault.

A statement from Greater Manchester Police read: “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.

“A 46-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of section 47 assault and section 39 common assault.”

He was arrested and released on bail pending enquiries

Wales were due to name their squad tomorrow ahead of November matches against the USA, Ireland and Finland. That announcement has now been cancelled.

A statement from the Welsh FA read: “The FAW is aware of an alleged incident involving the men’s national team manager Ryan Giggs.

“The FAW will be making no further comment at this current time.”

A statement made by a representative of Giggs, reported in the Mirror, said: “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.”
