Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has been arrested by police after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend.

The official report stated in The Sun and a statement released by the 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.”

Report from the Independent claim that the former Manchester United winger’s future as Wales manager could be in doubt as his squad announcement and press conference for their upcoming games on Tuesday (today) has been postponed.

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) has also issued a statement: “The squad announcement scheduled for tomorrow will no longer take place and has been postponed. 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.”
