The Football Association of Wales (FAW) has cancelled a press conference for Tuesday after being made away of an alleged incident involving coach Ryan Giggs.
The Sun claim that Giggs was arrested at his home in Manchester on Sunday after a “disturbance” and was later released on bail, along with a statement from the FAW which read: “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.”
The former Manchester United midfielder, who is currently in charge of the Wales national team, was scheduled to address the media to announce his Wales squad for a friendly match against the United States on November 12 plus Nations League fixtures against Ireland and Finland.
According to the newspaper, police were called to Giggs’ home on Sunday night.
The 46-year-old was arrested and questioned on suspicion of bodily harm and assault.
A statement from Greater Manchester Police read, as per Manchester Evening News: “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.
Giggs’ girlfriend of three years is Kate Greville
“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 pending enquiries.
The former United midfielder denies all allegations of assault made against him, according to The Mirror.
Official comment from a FAW spokesperson on Giggs:
“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.”

This is not the first Giggs-related scandal to hit the tabloids – and The Sun are also claiming that his Wales job is in doubt.
