RYAN GIGGS’ future as Wales boss was last night thrown into doubt after his arrest.
The Manchester United legend, 46, was yesterday questioned and then bailed, pending inquiries by police, on suspicion of actual bodily harm and assault following an alleged bust-up with his girlfriend.
The shock news came as Wales last night cancelled Giggs’ squad announcement for a trio of November games which was due to be via Zoom on Tuesday morning.
Welsh FA chiefs were locked in talks on Monday night over how to deal with Giggs’ alleged conduct.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman 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.”
The Welsh FA added: “The squad announcement scheduled for tomorrow will no longer take place and has been postponed.”
Giggs emerged from Pendleton police station on Monday afternoon after hours of questioning.
And now the Wales boss will have to answer to chief executive Jonathan Ford over the alleged incident.
It is not clear at this stage if Giggs will continue in his duties as boss for the friendly with USA in Swansea on November 12.
After that, there’s the Nations League double-header against the Republic of Ireland and Finland in Cardiff later this month.
Giggs, who won 13 Premier League titles and the Champions League twice in a glittering playing career, became Wales manager in January 2018 after signing a four-year contract.
He guided his country to their second successive European Championship finals with qualification last November, following a 2-0 win over Hungary.
