Giggs is no longer Wales coach. The former United star is awaiting trial

“It has been an honor to lead my country, but it is right that the association, the coaches and the players are preparing for the championship with confidence and without speculation about the position of head coach. I do not want preparations for the World Cup this case, “said forty-eight-year-old Giggs on Monday.

He was detained by police at a house in Worsley on November 1, 2020. He was accused of assaulting an ex-girlfriend and her sister, one of whom allegedly suffered minor injuries. Giggs was released on bail, but faces charges not only of assaulting his ex-partner, but also of manipulative or violent behavior in 2017 and 2020. He denied the blame.

The trial was scheduled to begin in January, but was postponed to August. After his temporary resignation, Page and his team won the World Cup after 64 years, defeating Ukraine in the June playoff final in Wales. The union accepted Giggs’ resignation. “We are grateful to him for his work on the national team and we appreciate the decision he has made, which is in the best interests of Welsh football,” the association said.

Giggs played for United for 23 years, became the English champion thirteen times and triumphed twice in the Champions League. He started in 64 national teams.
