Ryan Giggs Has Been Charged With Assaulting Two Women

Wales manager Ryan Giggs has been charged with assaulting two women and controlling or coercive behaviour.

The former Manchester United star has been charged with three offences after police were called to an address in Salford on November 1.

A statement from the Crown Prosecution Service reads: "We have authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Ryan Giggs with engaging in behaviour which was controlling or coercive and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

"A charge of assault by beating relating to a second woman has also been authorised. Mr Giggs will appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court on Wednesday 28th April."


"The CPS made the decision to charge Mr Giggs after reviewing a file of evidence from Greater Manchester Police. Criminal proceedings are active and nothing should be published that could jeopardise the defendant's right to a fair trial."

A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said: "A man from Salford has been charged with three offences after police were called to reports of a disturbance in the Worsley area in November 2020.


"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 has not managed Wales since since his arrest and denied the charges against him at the time.


Wales confirmed on Friday afternoon that Giggs will not be in charge of Wales at this summer's European Championships, with Robert Page continuing in his role.

Giggs is on bail at the time of writing.
