Hours before Tottenham’s loss to Manchester United, Serge Aurier was in the middle of a bust-up involving his partner Hencha Voigt.

The 26-year-old was arrested by police on suspicion of ABH on his girlfriend prior to Sunday's showdown at Wembley, which he missed out on completely.

However, Aurier denied assaulting the 31-year-old Haitian TV personality and the Hertfordshire Police confirmed the Cote d’Ivoire international was released without charge.

“A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of ABH. He has been released with no further action,” a statement read.

Tottenham also confirmed the incident via a spokesperson, saying: “We are aware of an incident concerning Serge Aurier this weekend. The player was released without charge.”

Aurier has a detailed past of misconduct but claimed the birth of his first child, Nehcha [whom he had with Voigt] helped him turn a new leaf.

The right-back has made 12 appearances in all competitons this season, scoring two goals in the FA Cup. He will look to return to Mauricio Pochettino's set-up ahead of Sunday’s visit to Fulham.
