Ryan Giggs is set to appear in front of a court in Manchester, after being charged with multiple crimes relating to an incident in November of 2020.

Court date set

News of Wales manager Giggs’ legal trouble was of course first forthcoming late last year.

This came when reports began to surface that the ex-Manchester United star was being investigated for the assault of two women.

The first woman involved was widely claimed to be Kate Greville, the 47-year-old’s girlfriend, with the Sun having suggested that a relative of Greville’s was also present when a ‘furious row’ erupted.

Giggs was initially released pending further investigation, but, as outlined above, has today been charged with a series of counts, in the form of:

Causing actual bodily harm, common assault, and coercive & controlling behaviour:

Via GMP: Ryan Giggs has been charged with causing actual bodily harm to a woman in her 30s and common assault of a woman in her 20s. Both counts relate to an incident on the evening of Sunday 1 November 2020.
Giggs also been charged with count of coercive + controlling behaviour

The tactician, for the time being, has been bailed, but is due to appear in front of Manchester and Salford Mags Court next Wednesday:

“Has been bailed + due to appear at Manchester and Salford Mags Court on 28 April. Police were called at 10.05pm on Sunday 1 November 2020 to reports of a disturbance. A woman in her 30s was treated for injuries at the scene.”

Giggs out/Page in

On the back of Giggs’ charges being confirmed, the Welsh Football Association have released a statement, confirming that the ex-winger will not be in charge of the country for this summer’s European Championships.

Instead, Robert Page will be entrusted with the role, assisted by Albert Stuivenberg.

In light of this decision, the FAW can confirm that Robert Page will assume the role of Cymru Men’s National Team manager for this summer’s EURO 2020 tournament and will be assisted by Albert Stuivenberg.

An FAW Board meeting will be convened to discuss these developments and its impact on the Association and the National Team.

The FAW will not be making any further comment at this current time.
