Former Manchester United player and Wale coach, Ryan Giggs, has been charged with assaulting two women.
This is coming less than two months before the start of the delayed Euro 2020 tournament.
The spokesman of a Crown Prosecution Service said the former Red Devils winger would appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on April 28.
“We have authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Ryan Giggs with engaging in behaviour which was controlling or coercive and assault occasioning actual bodily harm,” read the CPS statement.
“A charge of assault by beating relating to a second woman has also been authorised.”
The police disclosed that Giggs was charged for causing bodily harm against a woman in her 30s and the common assault of a woman in her 20s.
Both assault charges relate to an incident on November 1 last year, which is understood to have happened at Giggs’ home. The older woman was treated for injuries at the scene.
Giggs, 47, has been released on bail ahead of the court appearance.
