Ryan Giggs is in court today accused of assaulting and controlling his ex-girlfriend


Former Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs will go on trial on Monday accused of assaulting and controlling his ex-girlfriend.

Iggs, 48, is accused of using controlling and coercive behavior against Kate Greville, 36, between August 2017 and November 2020.

He is also accused of assaulting and actually assaulting Ms Greville and of assaulting their younger sister Emma Greville together at his home in Worsley, Greater Manchester on November 1, 2020.

He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

The trial, which is expected to last up to 10 days, will begin at Minshull Street Crown Court before moving across the city to Manchester Crown Court from Tuesday for the remainder of the proceedings.

The city’s Crown Square criminal court was forced to close last week for asbestos testing.

Giggs was due to appear in court in January, but the hearing was postponed due to the ongoing backlog of court cases, exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The jury is scheduled to be sworn in on Minshull Street on Monday before the prosecution opens the case.

Judge Hilary Manley will preside over the trial.

Giggs stepped down as manager of the Wales national team in June after being furloughed since November 2020.

In a statement, he said he did not want the country’s preparations for this year’s World Cup in Qatar to be “impaired, destabilized or in any way jeopardized by the continued interest in the case”.

During Giggs’ time at Old Trafford, Manchester United won 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League trophies, four FA Cups and three League Cups.

He has 64 caps for Wales and is part-owner of second division side Salford City.
