Ryan Giggs ‘Drunkenly Headbutted Girlfriend During Three-Years Of Abuse And Attacked Her Younger Sister, Court Hears

Published

on

Former Manchester United star, Ryan Giggs drunkenly headbutted his former girlfriend Kate Greville at his £1.7million mansion, left her in fear of violence on ‘many occasions’ and also attacked her sister, a court heard today.

The Wales manager, 47, appeared at the Manchester Magistrates Court for his first appearance, and the three charges against him were read out before he entered not guilty pleas.

He denied assaulting the 36-year-old PR executive at his home in Worsley, Greater Manchester, on November 1, and then hitting her younger sister, Emma, during the same alleged incident.

The Manchester United legend has also been charged with controlling and coercive behaviour over his relationship with Ms. Greville, with prosecutors alleging the abuse lasted almost three years.

Outlining the assault charge during the brief 13-minute hearing at Manchester Magistrates’ Court, prosecutor Andrea Griffiths said: “That is a domestic assault of his then partner, Kate Greville.

“It involved a deliberate headbutt to her, aggravated by the fact of the domestic background and the fact he was in drink at the particular time.”

The prosecutor said Giggs’ alleged controlling behaviour began “more or less from the start of the relationship” and involved “fear of violence on many occasions”, “incessant communications” and “ensuring she remained in a relationship with him, isolating her from friends and work colleagues”.

Giggs, who today spoke only to confirm his name, address, and enter his not guilty pleas, has been bailed to appear at Manchester Crown Court on May 26.

His conditions of bail are he must not contact Kate or Emma Greville or go to any address where they are.

Ms. Griffiths, prosecuting, said the charges were too serious to be dealt with by the magistrates court and requested that the trial be sent to the crown court.

She said: ‘The crown says these matters are not suitable for summary trial and should be allocated to the crown court.’

Ian Lewis, defending, said he did not have any submissions to make about where the trial should be allocated.

Deputy Senior District Judge Tan Ikram directed that the trial should be heard at Manchester Crown Court.

Judge Ikram said: ‘I accept the crown submissions at this stage that these matters should be allocated to the crown court.’

Police were called to Giggs’ address at 10.05 pm on November 1 to reports of a disturbance. A woman in her 30s was treated for injuries at the scene.

The former footballer was arrested and later bailed pending further inquiries.

Giggs met Kate in 2013 after she helped promote his Hotel Football venue, launched with ex-United teammate Gary Neville.

Giggs went public with the relationship with Ms. Greville in 2018, eight months after his divorce from ex-wife, Stacey Cooke.

The pair divorced in December 2017 and they finalised a £40million settlement after he cheated on her with model and Big Brother star Imogen Thomas during their 10-year marriage.

According to workers of the hotel, Natashia booked a room in their facility on May 20, 2021 at about 6:43pm and after one hour and 17 minutes, she left and returned with Priscilla, whose identity was not known by the hotel until after her death.

Joel Glazer Opens Up On Man Utd’s Transfer Plans This Summer

Published

on

Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer has insisted that the club will invest ‘meaningfully’ in the summer transfer window, and is confident about what the future holds for the Red Devils.

Man Utd are close to agreeing a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, while they have also been linked with moves for Spurs’ Harry Kane and West Ham’s Declan Rice.

Glazer, who United fans seldom hear directly from, confirmed at a recent fans’ forum that the club will invest in the playing squad this summer.

“We’re going to keep investing on the pitch, which we did last year, and we plan on doing it meaningfully this year. So, we feel that we’re in a good spot,” he said, via Man Utd’s website.

Glazer also spoke about the restructuring behind the scenes at the club, which involved John Murtough becoming the director of football with Darren Fletcher appointed as technical director, and how he is confident that the club will end their trophy drought.

“There’s been a tremendous amount of work done behind the scenes and we feel like we’re absolutely on the right track,” Glazer said. “As you all know, we’ve put John Murtough as our first football director, along with Darren Fletcher in there as well. And we feel with them together leading the way, and the work done behind the scenes, that we’re absolutely on the right track.

“Our recruitment process policies, the way we go about it has changed in the last few years, I think we’ve all seen how that has changed. We think we’re absolutely in a position for a lot of success for the future.

“Any other club that has won titles recently had years where they didn’t win the league, then they moved up, they were successful and then everybody appreciates the way their structure is set up. We think we’re on that path. We feel very good about where we are.

“But at the end of the day, we all share the same goal – to win trophies. And we will make sure that everything is being done to put us in the best position to win trophies, we’ll continue to do that. And we think we’ve set up a structure behind the scenes to deliver success.”
