Giggs, 46, denies the allegations made against him.

A statement released on behalf of Giggs said: “He is cooperating with the police and will continue to assist them with their ongoing investigation.”

The 13-time Premier League winner was due to announce his squad for Wales’ upcoming games against the USA, Ireland and Finland.

The conference was planned to be over Zoom due to coronavirus restrictions.

The Welsh FA said: “The squad announcement scheduled will no longer take place and has been postponed.”

It is not clear at this stage if Giggs will continue in his duties as boss.

Welsh FA chiefs were locked in talks on Monday night over how to deal with Giggs’ alleged conduct.

Waes are due to play the USA in a friendly in Swansea on Thursday evening.

They then have to Nations League matches, both in Cardiff, against Ireland and Finland.

The Dragons currently top their group, with three wins and a draw from their opening four games.

The two-time Champions League winner became Wales manager in January 2018 on a four-year contract.


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.”
