Ryan Giggs has denied assaulting his girlfriend Kate Greville at his £1.7million mansion after police arrested the football star.
Police officers were called to Giggs’s Worsley home shortly after 10pm on Sunday following reports of ‘a disturbance’.
The former-Manchester United player and Wales manager was arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm and assault.
His agent announced last night: ‘He denies all allegations of assault made against him.
‘He is cooperating with the police and will continue to assist them with their ongoing investigations.’
The Football Association of Wales (FAW) has cancelled a press conference set for today in light of the allegations.
The organisation was set to announce a team line up ahead of matches against the USA, Finland and Republic of Ireland.

The FAW confirmed it has been made aware of an issue surrounding their 46-year-old men’s national team manager.
Giggs has been with girlfriend Ms Greville on-and-off since 2017. They met in 2013 when she began handling public relations for Hotel Football – which he co-owns.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman told The Sun: ‘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.’
He was released on bail and was photographed leaving Pendleton police station.
In 2018, Man United legend Giggs went public with PR executive Ms Greville for the first time.
Giggs was first linked to Kate after she ended her marriage in 2015, 18 months after she started working for him
The couple were immediately linked after Giggs’ split from his wife Stacey who he divorced in December 2017.
Ryan and Stacey finalised a £40million settlement after he cheated on her with model and Big Brother star Imogen Thomas during their 10-year marriage.
His relationship with the reality TV star led to a super-injunction scandal when the married footballer successfully applied to the high court to prevent any details of the affair he’d allegedly had with her from being made public.
But MP John Hemming used parliamentary privilege to name the footballer as Giggs in a Commons debate.

The Welsh football coach also had an eight-year relationship with his brother Rhodri’s partner Natasha throughout the duration of his marriage, during which time his wife Stacey Giggs had been pregnant with their two children.
The affair was first revealed in June 2011 when Rhodri’s wife Natasha admitted to secretly sleeping with the former star winger in an interview with a Sunday paper.
She claimed she had aborted Ryan’s baby just weeks before she got married to Rhodri in Las Vegas.
The affair split the family apart, with brother Rhodri Giggs falling out with his brother and mother, who reportedly sided with Ryan after the affair.
The Wales manager apologised to his brother for the betrayal weeks after the affair was revealed, saying he ‘wasn’t thinking’, but Rhodri said the apology was just hollow words.

Rhodri revealed last year he has not spoken to his brother or mother since the episode.
He said had forgiven his older brother after several years, and saw the comedy in the situation whe he appeared in an advert for bookmaker Paddy Power poking fun at the situation.
At the time Rhodri said: ‘I think he over-stepped the mark, I don’t think I did. What I did was funny, what he did was a car crash.’
In August 2018, Ryan finally went public with his secret PR girl lover Kate, 36, after whisking her away for a holiday in Italy eight months after his divorce, where the pair were pictured exploring the town of Ravello on Italy’s Amalfi coast.
Giggs was first linked to Ms Greville after she ended her marriage in 2015, 18 months after she started working for him.
Ms Greville’s ex-husband Damian Burke accused Giggs of being ‘the third person in our marriage’. They denied they had a sexual relationship at the time.
Kate was showered with gifts by the footballer as his ten-year marriage to wife Stacey, who has two children with the footballer, crumbled, according to the Sun.
The two first met in 2013 after Kate helped promote his Hotel Football venue, launched with ex-United teammate Gary Neville.
And a month after his divorce, Giggs hired Kate as head of PR for GG Hospitality, his firm owned with Neville.
