Manchester United legend and Wales head coach Ryan Giggs has denied allegations of assault after being arrestedby police.

Police have confirmed that the 46-year-old was released on bail on Monday pending further inquiries.

A spokesman for the Greater Manchester Police issued the following statement:“Police were called at 10.05pmon 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 representative for Giggs stated that the former winger has denied all allegations against him, and is cooperating fully with the ongoing inquiries being made by police.

"Mr Giggs denies all allegations of assault made against him," read the statement."He is cooperating with the police and will continue to assist them with their ongoing investigations."

Giggs was due to announce his latest Wales squad at the start of the week, with a UEFA Nations League double-header againstthe Republic of Ireland and Finland set to follow his side's clash with the U.S. national team over the international break.

The Football Association of Wales has confirmed that the squad announcement, which was scheduled for Tuesday, will no longer take place and has been postponed.
