The footballer was said to have been quizzed by detectives for at least 15 hours, according to The Sun.

‘It was reported the alleged rape happened in June 2022. A man was arrested at an address in Barnet on suspicion of rape and taken into custody where he remains. Enquiries into the circumstances are ongoing.’
