Ryan Giggs was arrested in November for assaulting his girlfriend, but was granted bail
The Manchester United legend now faces up to five years in prison after being charged. The Crown Prosecution Service will charge the manager for assault and coercive control
Former Manchester United star Ryan Giggs will be charged by the Crown Prosecution Service according to a report cited in UK Mirror.
The 47-year-old could face about five years in prison after he was charged with coercive control and assaulting two women.
Police officers arrived the home of the United legend in Worsley, Greater Manchester, back in November after he reportedly had a bust-up with Kate Greville who is now his ex-girlfriend.
Giggs who was initially arrested was later released on bail. The manager lived in the house he purchased for his mother Lynne on the same street and had been in a relationship with Kate since 2017.
The pair met at Hotel Football in 2013 after she moved from Dubai. On Friday, April 23, the Crown Prosecution Service confirmed the Welshman had been charged with assault and coercive control against Greville.
The “second woman” referred to is believed to be a friend. And as reported, coercive or controlling behaviour carries a maximum sentence of five years behind bars.
The Manchester United legend was employed to work as assistant under the experienced tactician at the Old Trafford between 2014 and 2016.
Both managers inspired the club to an FA Cup title alongside the likes of star-studded players including Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria.
