Ryan Giggs on his way to Manchester Crown Court for trial


There are serious allegations that British ex-soccer player Ryan Giggs has to face before a court in Manchester: His ex-girlfriend Kate Greville accuses him of forcing her for years, controlling her excessively and finally abusing her.

The prosecutor speaks of a "manipulative, toxic, harmful relationship between a man and a vulnerable woman".

When she once accused him of having an affair, he threw her naked out of a hotel room in Dubai, the 36-year-old plaintiff reported in court.

When she finally wanted to break up with Giggs after a long and troubled on-off relationship, Giggs physically assaulted her at his home in Worsley, Salford in November 2020.

Giggs was drunk and angry.

He headbutted her and hit her sister Emma, ​​who was also present, with an elbow in the face.

"This will ruin me"

Greville said she then called the police, which upset Giggs.

"It will ruin me and it will ruin you," he is said to have said.

"Think of my job, think of my career, think of my children," the Guardian quoted from the plaintiff's statement.

In fact, Giggs, 48, resigned from his job as manager of the Wales national football team after being charged.

Giggs was temporarily arrested for the alleged attacks on the two women, but was released after posting bail.

At a court hearing last year, he rejected all of the sisters' allegations, and in the ongoing trial he denies all charges relating to the period from December 2017 to November 2020.

Nice Ryan and Bad Ryan

Kate Greville said she found out before the final altercation that Giggs had been in relationships with at least eight other women.

"I knew everything he had done behind my back and for the first time I had proof of it because he always managed to fool me that it was all pipe dreams and lies and that I was crazy."

Giggs wanted to hurt her in November 2020. This is what differentiated the attack from others before.

“That was real intention.

He looked me in the eye and headbutted me.

It wasn't a grab or a shove."

Greville explained Giggs seemed like there were two people inside him - a nice Ryan and a nasty Ryan who was violent and controlling.

Already at the beginning of the relationship, Giggs was extremely jealous and controlling, the woman continued to report.

The image damage for Giggs is already considerable.

In 2009 he was Footballer of the Year in England and Sportsman of the Year in Great Britain.

Fans adore the Welshman for his loyalty, having only played for Manchester throughout his professional career, where he has made more than 900 appearances.

He has been exceptionally successful with 13 Premier League titles, four FA Cup victories and two Champions League victories.

The process is ongoing, and a verdict is expected to be pronounced on August 26th.
