“It has been an honor and a privilege to manage my country, but it is better that the Welsh Federation, the group of coaches and players prepare for the World Cup with certainty, clarity and without speculation surrounding their situation of their first coach. , he added.

What is the accusation against Ryan Giggs

Giggs is under judicial control after being accused of having been violent with his ex-girlfriend Kate Greville, whom he would have denigrated, humiliated, mistreated and even isolated against his will, for three years, from December 2017 to November 2020.

On November 1, 2020, he would also have beaten and assaulted Emma Greville, the sister of his ex-girlfriend, although Giggs denies all the accusations. However, for this reason he no longer managed Wales at the European Championship a year ago, leaving his place to his assistant Rob Page.

His trial, initially scheduled for January, is due to take place in August. “I do not want the preparations for the World Cup to be affected, destabilized or jeopardized by this matter,” justified Giggs, who assured that he intends to resume his coaching career “at a later date.”
