Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs was arrested on Monday over suspicion of assault, according to media reports in the UK.

The police visited the 46-year-old Wales national team manager’s home on Sunday night after receiving reports of a disturbance, a report said.

“Police were called at 10:05 p.m. on Sunday to reports of a disturbance. A woman in her 30s sustained minor injuries but did not require any treatment,” the report quoted a statement from Greater Manchester Police as saying. “A 46-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of section 47 assault and section 39 common assault. He was released on bail pending enquiries.”

Greater Manchester Police were not immediately available for comment.

The Welsh football association (FAW) said it has been notified of the allegations against Giggs.

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

Wales were due to name their squad on Tuesday for November matches against the U.S., Ireland and Finland but have postponed it, reports said.
