Diouf bailed by cops after wife-beating claim
Bolton forward El-Hadji Diouf has been re-bailed by police after he was questioned over claims he assaulted his wife at their home.
The 25-year-old has attended a Greater Manchester police station following reports of an assault in the early hours of Sunday, November 5.
It was reported that the Senegal international's wife, Valerie, called the police to their Bolton home after it was said she suffered a cut lip.
Diouf was initially bailed pending further enquiries.
A Greater Manchester Police spokeswoman said he has now been re-bailed to attend a police station on November 16.
The former African Footballer of the Year has been a controversial figure since joining Liverpool from French club Lens in a £10million deal in 2002 and then later moving to Bolton.
He has twice appeared in court following incidents of spitting.
In September 2003 he was fined £5,000 at Glasgow's Sheriff Court for spitting on a Celtic supporter during a UEFA Cup quarter-final with Liverpool.
Last November, he pleaded guilty to reckless behaviour at Teesside Magistrates' Court when an 11-year-old fan claimed he had been hit by juice the player spat from his mouth in a match at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium.
Diouf, who reportedly earns £40,000 a week, claimed legal aid to fight the case and was fined £500 and ordered to pay £500 costs.
In December last year, he was given a 12-month driving ban and fined £3,000 after being found guilty of drink driving.
