Share this article


Ryan Giggs has pleaded not guilty in his first court appearance to charges of actual bodily harm and coercive or controlling behaviour.

The 47-year-old appeared at Manchester Magistrates Court to deny charges of causing actual bodily harm to a woman in her 30s and common assault of a woman in her 20s at an address in Salford last November.

He's also been charged with coercive or controlling behaviour over a period of three years between December 2017 and November 2020.

Former Manchester United footballer Giggs only spoke to confirm his name and address and enter the not guilty plea in front of a socially distanced courtroom.

The case was adjourned and Giggs is scheduled to reappear at Manchester Crown Court on May 26th.

He has been bailed until his trial on the condition he does not approach either of the women he is accused of assaulting.
