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.

‘Robert Page will take charge for the next three matches against Belgium, Mexico and the Czech Republic and will be supported by Albert Stuivenberg as was the case during the last international window in November. The squad for these upcoming matches will be announced on Monday 15th March.’
