From a recent report, Wales national side has officially sacked Ryan Giggs as head coach following the assault charges against him that were made public on Friday.
Wales manager Ryan Giggs has been accused and charged with assaulting two women in the city of Salford. The former Manchester United star was also accused of psychological abuse and controlling behavior between December 2017 and November 2020. Meanwhile, Ryan Giggs allegedly accused these women for nearly three years. The Welshman responded by stating he is looking forward to clearing his name from these accusations but his job was immediately on the line.
Just as expected, the Wales FA, immediately, after the news of the charges broke, decided to take him off the squad only months before the Euros begin. Ryan Giggs is expected to make a case for his defense with his team of lawyers but the evidence is too heavy to get out of this one.
And there is a good chance that the Manchester United legend is declared guilty of the charges leveled against him when this whole process comes to an end. Although the former player maintains his innocence, his case is difficult to defend even for the greatest law firms in Great Britain.
Wales Officially Sacks Ryan Giggs
After BBC Sport reported the news of Ryan Giggs’ charges, the Wales FA released a statement through their official website. They reveal he won’t be coaching the squad any longer and they also reveal who will replace him during the Euros: “The Football Association of Wales has noted the decision of The Crown Prosecution Service to proceed with charging Ryan Giggs, the Men’s National Team Manager.
“In light of this decision, the FAW can confirm that Robert Page will assume the role of Cymru Men’s National Team manager for this summer’s EURO 2020 tournament and will be assisted by Albert Stuivenberg. An FAW Board meeting will be convened to discuss these developments and their impact on the Association and the National Team. The FAW will not be making any further comment at this current time.”
