Oscar Ortega was taken into custody late Monday and released after appearing before a judge on Tuesday. He was not immediately charged with any crime.

The case will be heard by a court that handles violence against women. No other details were immediately released.

Atletico Madrid says it will not consider taking any action until all details are available.

The 60-year-old Uruguayan was Atletico's trainer when coach Diego Simeone played for the club in 2004. He returned as a member of Simeone's staff when the Argentine took over as coach at the end of 2011.
