Ryan Giggs domestic violence: Judge orders retrial of ex-Manchester United player Ryan Giggs on domestic violence charges

Judge Hilary Manley at Manchester Crown Court set a new trial date for July 31, 2023, after jurors deadlocked after the first four-week hearing. Former Wales international Giggs, 48, denied controlling and coercive behavior towards his ex-girlfriend Kate Greville, as well as assaulting her and her younger sister.

Prosecutor Peter Wright told the court on Wednesday that “we are seeking a retrial in respect of Mr Giggs. “The case has been dealt with at a high level in the prosecution and also the complainant’s willingness to give evidence.

“They indicate a readiness to do so.”

Giggs remains on bail until next year’s trial. Manley dismissed the jury of seven women and four men in the original trial, which had been given the opportunity to reach a majority verdict after she determined there was no “realistic view” of a decision after nearly 23 hours of deliberation.

If ultimately found guilty, the three counts could lead to five years in prison. Prosecutors claimed the ex-star punched Greville in the face when she tried to end their relationship and subjected her to a “litany of abuse, both physical and psychological”.

Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson was among those who gave evidence in the case, with Giggs also admitting to cheating in all his previous romantic relationships but denying ever being abusive.

He resigned as Wales manager in June after being on leave since his arrest. Giggs exploded onto the scene as a teenager in the mid-1990s. He ended his career at Old Trafford as the most decorated player in English football history.

As a player, he made a club record 963 appearances over 23 years for Manchester United, winning 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League trophies.

He began his coaching career at Old Trafford, taking interim charge at the end of the 2013–14 season after David Moyes was sacked. Giggs then worked as an assistant to Louis van Gaal for two years.
