Bolton striker Ivan Klasnic arrested in rape inquiry
A Premier League footballer has been arrested on suspicion of raping a teenage girl in Manchester.
Bolton Wanderers striker Ivan Klasnic is accused of attacking the 17-year-old in a city centre apartment.
She contacted Greater Manchester Police at 0500 BST on Monday. The 30-year-old Croatian international was arrested later.
He was released on bail until 1 November pending further inquiries, a police spokesman said.
The player, who has won 38 caps for Croatia and scored 12 international goals, signed a two-year deal with Bolton Wanderers in August.
He was on loan from Nantes last season but the French side did not renew his contract over the summer.
A spokesman for Bolton Wanderers said the club would not be commenting on the allegation.
