Ryan Giggs has bail extended to six weeks before Wales' first Euro 2021 game


Wales boss Ryan Giggs has had his bail extended after he was arrested on suspicion of assault.

The former Manchester United star was arrested in November after a reported row with “on-off girlfriend” Kate Greville. He was later bailed.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said in a statement on Friday: “A 46-year-old man (now aged 47) arrested on suspicion of section 39 common assault and section 47 assault in November 2020 has had his bail extended until Saturday May 1.

“This relates to an incident reported to police at 10.05pm on Sunday November 1 2020, on Chatsworth Road, Worsley.

“A file remains with the CPS and a decision is expected in due course.”

As a result of his arrest Giggs was unable to take charge of Wales with Robert Page assuming the role on a caretaker basis.

The country’s FA put out a statement saying they had “mutually agreed” with Giggs that he would not oversee the matches against the United States, the Republic of Ireland and Finland.

Wales will compete in this summer’s European Championships and have been drawn in a group with Italy, Turkey and Switzerland.

Their games are set to take place in Baku and Rome.

Wales’ first game is against Switzerland on June 12 – six weeks after Giggs’ bail is due to end.

Police were spotted outside Giggs’ Worsley home in November after there were reports of a disturbance involving Ms Greville.

Giggs released a statement on his behalf following the incident that said: “Mr Giggs denies all allegations of assault made against him.

“He is co-operating with the police and will continue to assist them with their ongoing investigations.”
