Ryan Giggs will not manage Wales for World Cup qualifiers in March

WALES MANAGER Ryan Giggs will not be involved in the camp for the international sides' next three matches.

Giggs was arrested on suspicion of assault and actual bodily harm in November of 2020, leading him to initially stand aside for three matches.

Since then, the former Manchester United captain has been in attendance at a number of Salford matches, but has largely remained out of the limelight. Giggs denies all allegations of assault made against him.

The allegations in question refers to an incident that is said to have occurred with his "on-off" girlfriend.

"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 Cymru squad for these upcoming matches will be announced on Monday 15 March."

The most recent update on Giggs' case comes from the Greater Manchester Police, who said: "A file remains with the CPS and a decision is expected in due course."
