Ryan Giggs Pleads Not Guilty In First Court Appearance After Assault Charge On Two Women

Published

on

Former Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs has denied a charge he was violent and engaged in behaviour towards a woman in her 30s, including isolation, belittling, humiliation, harassment, degradation and abuse.

The Wales manager also entered a not guilty plea of actual bodily harm relating to an incident at his home in Worsley, Greater Manchester, on 1 November.

He has also been charged with the common assault of a woman in her 20s during the same alleged incident. An additional charge of controlling and coercive behaviour alleges the abuse lasted almost three years, between December 2017 and November 2020.

He appeared in the dock at Manchester Magistrates’ Court for his first court appearance as the three charges against him were read out and he entered his not guilty pleas.

Giggs, who spoke only to confirm his name, address and enter his not guilty pleas, has been bailed to appear at Manchester Crown Court on 26 May.

His conditions of bail are he must not contact the two women or go to any address where they are. On Friday, Giggs released a statement saying he had “full respect for the due process of law and understand the seriousness of the allegations”.


He added: “I will plead not guilty in court and look forward to clearing my name. I would like to wish Robert Page, the coaching staff, the players and the supporters every success at the Euros this summer.”

Giggs won 64 caps for Wales and had a glittering playing career with Manchester United, 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.
