Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend Kate Greville.

The 46-year-old was questioned on the suspicion of actual bodily harm and assault after police were called to his property Worsley, Manchester on Sunday night.

‘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 spokesperson from the Greater Manchester police told the Sun.

‘A 46-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of section 47 assault and section 39 common assault.’

Giggs has since been released on bail and he was whisked away in a black Mercedes after emerging from Pendleton police station on Monday afternoon.

Giggs has been dating Greville since 2018 following the break-up of his marriage to Stacey Giggs.

The pair married in 2007 but they divorced in 2017 after Ryan’s eight-year long affair with his brother’s wife, Natasha Lever.

Giggs went public with Greville in 2018 but the pair met five years earlier, when Kate was involved in Giggs’ Hotel Football business that he runs alongside the likes of Gary Neville and Paul Scholes.

Giggs took his first steps into management by replacing Chris Coleman as Wales boss in 2018 but the Welsh FA released a brief statement tonight to confirm that a squad announcement on Tuesday has now been postponed due to the 46-year-old’s arrest.

‘The squad announcement scheduled for tomorrow will no longer take place and has been postponed,’ a statement read.

Wales take on the USA in Swansea in a friendly on November 12th but its unclear whether the FA will allow him to remain in charge until and if his name is cleared.
