Premier League player arrested on suspicion of child sex offences and suspended by club


A Premier League footballer has been arrested on suspicion of child sex offences. The player, 31, cannot be named for legal reasons. He was placed under arrest and questioned by Greater Manchester Police last Friday before being released on bail.

Police raided the player’s home and he has been suspended indefinitely by his club while the police launch an investigation into the matter.

Greater Manchester Police’s Major Incident Team are thought to be leading the case.


A statement from GMP read: “Officers arrested a 31-year-old man on Friday 16 July 2021 on suspicion of child sex offences.

“He is on police bail pending further enquiries.”

A spokesperson from the footballer’s club said: “The club can confirm it has suspended a first-team player pending a police investigation.


“The club will continue to support the authorities with their inquiries and will not be making any further statement at this time.”

The Daily Mail report that the player in question’s agent has refused to comment.

An insider meanwhile told the Daily Mirror: “This has caused a massive shock.


“Any suggestion of allegations of offences involving a child are rightly taken seriously from the point they are made.

“Clearly this matter must be fully investigated. Allegations of this nature will cause a considerable amount of alarm among everyone within the club, the fans, and the wider public.

“This is now a case of waiting to see where the investigation takes us.”
