Manager Ryan Giggs will not be involved in Wales’ next three international fixtures amid allegations of assault, the Football Association of Wales said Tuesday.
Giggs had denied the allegations earlier in the day after British media reported he had been arrested following a disturbance at his home.
Assistant coach Robert Page will take charge for the next three matches against the United States, Ireland and Finland.
The Sun reported that police had been called to the former Manchester United winger’s home Sunday night after receiving reports of a disturbance.
He was released on bail pending enquiries, the paper said.

Giggs’ representatives said Tuesday that he was cooperating with police.
The FAW, which was scheduled to name its squad for the three upcoming games Tuesday, said the squad would now be released Thursday.
Giggs made 963 appearances over 23 years for United as a player, a club record, winning a huge haul of honors including 13 Premier League winner’s medals and two Uefa Champions League winner’s medals.
He represented Wales as a player 64 times between 1991 and 2007 and took over as national coach in 2018.
