Ryan Giggs reportedly arrived at Manchester Magistrates’ Court this morning (Wednesday) after he was charged with allegedly assaulting two women.
The former Manchester United midfielder is accused of causing actual bodily harm to his ex-girlfriend, PR executive Kate Greville, 36, at his home in Worsley, Greater Manchester, on November 1.
Giggs has also been charged with the common assault of a woman in her 20s – understood to be Ms Greville’s younger sister – during the same alleged incident.
Wales manager Giggs, 47, faces an additional charge of engaging in coercive or controlling behaviour against Ms Greville in their relationship between December 2017 and November 2020.
Following the announcement of the charges on Friday, Giggs denied the allegations.
The Football Association of Wales (FAW) has announced caretaker boss Robert Page will manage the country at this summer’s European Championship finals.
