Ryan Giggs to MISS Wales’ next three games after having his bail extended amid assault investigation

1 min read

Ryan Giggs will be absent from the touchline for Wales’ next three matches after it was ‘mutually agreed’ he would not be involved in this month’s World Cup qualifiers.

The former Manchester United player was arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm and assault in November. The 46-year-old, who denies the allegations, last month had his bail extended until May 1.

As was the case in November, his assistant Robert Page will take charge, ahead of two qualifiers against Belgium and the Czech Republic and a friendly with Mexico.
