Former Manchester United footballer Nicky Butt has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting a woman.
Officers were called to a house on Broadway in Hale at about 14:00 BST on Tuesday.
A woman received a small cut to her hand and did not require hospital treatment, Greater Manchester Police said.
The 44-year-old, who is head coach at Manchester United’s youth academy, was bailed pending further inquires.
The BBC has approached Manchester United for comment.
Mr Butt won a string of Premier League titles in his playing career at Old Trafford and also played in the club’s dramatic last-gasp 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich in the 1999 Uefa Champions League final.
He later went on to play for Newcastle United, Birmingham City and South China.
