Ryan Giggs has bail extended following arrest on suspicion of assault

Written by on 26/02/2021

Wales manager and former Manchester United star Ryan Giggs has had his bail extended after he was arrested on suspicion of assault.

The 47-year-old was arrested and later bailed in November after a reported row with his “on-off girlfriend” Kate Greville.

In a statement on Friday, a Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “A 46-year-old man (now aged 47) arrested on suspicion of section 39 common assault and section 47 assault in November 2020 has had his bail extended until Saturday 1 May.

“This relates to an incident reported to police at 10.05pm on Sunday 1 November 2020, on Chatsworth Road, Worsley.

“A file remains with the CPS and a decision is expected in due course.”

Police were seen parked outside the star’s home in Worsley, Greater Manchester, in November following reports of the disturbance involving 36-year-old PR worker Ms Greville.

A statement released on behalf of Giggs at the time said: “Mr Giggs denies all allegations of assault made against him.

“He is co-operating with the police and will continue to assist them with their ongoing investigations.”

Giggs missed Wales’ Nations League fixtures following his arrest and Robert Page was put in caretaker charge.

The former footballer won 64 caps for Wales and won 13 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, four FA Cups and three League Cups during his career with United.
