Wales boss Ryan Giggs denies allegations of violence on his girlfriend

Wales football manager Ryan Giggs has denied all allegations against him after being arrested on suspicion of assault on his girlfriend.

Giggs was arrested and questioned on suspicion of actual bodily harm and assault before being bailed pending further inquiries.

A statement on behalf of the Manchester United legend read: "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."

Greater Manchester Police earlier released a statement saying: “Police were called at 10.05 pm 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.”

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.”

Giggs, 46, was appointed Wales manager in January 2018, succeeding Chris Coleman, and has steered them to qualification for Euro 2020.
