Footballer Ivan Klasnic bailed over rape allegation
Bolton striker Ivan Klasnic was re-bailed today over an allegation that he raped a 17-year-old girl.
The 31-year-old was held for questioning by police last October before being released pending further inquiries.
He was first ordered to answer bail on November 1. His bail was then extended to today.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police confirmed that Klasnic has been re-bailed for a second time until April 1.
Police were called to an apartment in Manchester city centre in the early hours of October 25, when the allegation was made.
The Croatia international was not at the address when the complaint was made and was arrested some time later, sources said.
