anchester United legend Ryan Giggs has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend, according to reports.

The Wales manager, 46, was allegedly arrested and later bailed on suspicion of assaulting Kate Greville, his girlfriend of three years. 

Police were called to a £1.7million home in Worsley, Greater Manchester, on Sunday after reports of a “disturbance”, the Sun reported. 

A representative for Mr Giggs said he denied the allegations and is cooperating with police.

The statement 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.”

Giggs was photographed leaving Pendleton police station yesterday afternoon and was driven away in a black Mercedes.

The couple reportedly met when Greville began work as PR for Hotel Football in 2013 after moving from Dubai.

In a statement given to the Sun, Greater Manchester Police said: “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.”

Wales have cancelled a press conference scheduled for Tuesday following what it described as an “alleged incident” involving the manager. 

Wales were due to announce their squad on Tuesday for the upcoming friendly against the USA, and Nations League fixtures with the Republic of Ireland and Finland.

But the Football Association of Wales (FAW) has confirmed it has been made aware of an issue surrounding the 46-year-old boss.

“The FAW is aware of an alleged incident involving the men’s national team manager Ryan Giggs,” an FAW spokesman said. “The FAW will be making no further comment at this current time.”
