El Hadji Diouf has been arrested over allegations he hit his wife at their home in Bolton.

The 25-year-old was held by police after reports of an assault on his wife Valerie in the early hours of Sunday.

The Senegal international was given bail and must return to a police station on Wednesday to find out if he will be charged.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: ‘At 0645 GMT on Sunday 5 November police were called to an address in Bolton following reports of an assault.

‘Officers attended and a 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of section 47 assault.

‘He has been bailed until Wednesday 8 November pending further inquiries.’

He’s innocent until proven guilty. It won’t stop people having a go at him but it’s true all the same.

This isn’t the best of publicity for the club at a time when we could do with all the positive spin we can muster.
