Wales manager and former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs has been charged with assaulting two women.

He is accused of causing actual bodily harm to a woman in her 30s and common assault of a woman in her 20s at an address in Salford last November.

Mr Giggs, of Worsley, is also charged with coercive or controlling behaviour between 2017 and 2020.

He has been bailed to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on 28 April.

Greater Manchester Police said officers were called at 22:05 GMT on 1 November to reports of a disturbance at an address in Worsley.

The force said a woman in her 30s was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Mr Giggs is also accused of coercive or controlling behaviour between December 2017 and November 2020.

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) has confirmed assistant manager Robert Page will take charge of Wales at this summer’s European Championships.

Page will be assisted by Albert Stuivenberg.

The FAW said there would be a board meeting to “discuss the developments and its impact on the association and the national team”.

Giggs, who won 64 caps for Wales between 1991 and 2007, was appointed national manager in January 2018 and led the team to qualification for Euro 2020, which has been re-scheduled because of Covid-19.
