Ryan Giggs arrives to go on trial for ‘controlling & assaulting ex-girlfriend Kate Greville & attacking her sister’


RYAN Giggs has arrived to stand trial accused of controlling and drunkenly headbutting his ex-girlfriend.

The former Manchester United ace, 48, allegedly assaulted Kate Greville, 36, at his £1.7million home in Worsley, Greater Manchester, on November 1, 2020.

He is also accused of attacking her sister Emma Greville on the same date.

Giggs was surrounded by a scrum of photographers and TV crews as he turned up at Minshull Street Crown Court at around 9.15am today.

Later, wearing a dark suit, white shirt, and tie, he stood in the dock and identified himself to the clerk.

Giggs was meant to go on trial in January but the case was adjourned due to a backlog following the pandemic.

The former Wales boss denies causing Kate actual bodily harm and engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour between December 2017 and November 2020.

He has also pleaded not guilty to the common assault by beating of Emma Greville on November 1.

Giggs is on conditional bail and must not contact Kate or Emma Greville, or go to any address where they are.

He won 64 caps for Wales and had a glittering playing career with Man Utd, winning 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League trophies, four FA Cups and three League Cups.

He is also a co-owner of League Two side Salford City.

Giggs has denied the allegations and previously issued a statement in which he said he would “look forward to clearing my name”.

He stepped down as Wales manager last month after going on leave when he was charged in November 2020.

The footballer said he did not want the country’s preparations for this year’s World Cup in Qatar to be “affected, destabilised or jeopardised in any way by the continued interest around this case”.
