A CPS spokesman said: ‘We have authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Ryan Giggs with engaging in behaviour which was controlling or coercive and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

‘A charge of assault by beating relating to a second woman has also been authorised. Mr Giggs will appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 28th April.

‘The CPS made the decision to charge Mr Giggs after reviewing a file of evidence from Greater Manchester Police.

‘Criminal proceedings are active and nothing should be published that could jeopardise the defendant’s right to a fair trial.’

Greater Manchester Police said Giggs was charged with assault causing actual bodily harm against a woman in her 30s and the common assault of a woman in her 20s.

Both assault charges relate to an incident on November 1 last year, which is understood to have happened at Giggs’ home in Worsley near Salford. The older woman was treated for injuries at the scene.

Giggs has been released on bail ahead of the court appearance.

The 47-year-old, who is manager of the Welsh national team, has missed his country’s recent Nations League fixtures, following his arrest late last year. 

Robert Page was put in caretaker charge in his absence.

The former winger won 64 caps for Wales and had a glittering playing career with Manchester United, winning 13 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, four FA Cups and three League Cups.

He is also a co-owner of League Two side Salford City.
