Liverpool footballer Djibril Cisse has been cautioned by police after assaulting his pregnant wife.

The 24-year-old striker was arrested at their home in Frodsham, Cheshire, on Thursday evening.

He was taken to a police station and questioned before accepting a caution for common assault.

A Cheshire Constabulary spokesman said: “As a result of police inquiries, a 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of section 39 assault.

“The man was interviewed at a police station and cautioned in respect of the assault.”

Last June, French international Cisse accepted a caution for hitting a 15-year-old boy in London.
