Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa has been arrested on suspicion of attacking his wife after police were called to his home on Tuesday night, just hours after the club’s 2-0 victory over Sunderland.
Musa, 24, from Nigeria, was not included in the matchday squad for Tuesday night’s match, though he was not at home when police arrived at his Countesthorpe residence in Leicestershire shortly after the game at the King Power Stadium finished.
After receiving an allegation of domestic abuse against the Nigeria international, police spoke to neighbours about the Leicester City player, before he returned home later that night.
