The retrial of former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs on domestic violence allegations has been called off after the charges were dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in the UK. 

Giggs was accused of physically harming his ex-girlfriend Kate Greville and engaging in controlling and coercive behavior. He also faced a charge of assaulting Greville’s sister, Emma.

Last year, the jury was dismissed in a trial because they were unable to come to a decision on the charges. Giggs, who denied all allegations, had a trial date set for July 31st at Manchester Crown Court. However, according to a BBC report, Kate decided not to testify in a retrial due to the emotional strain it had caused her and her sister.

“We have determined there is no longer sufficient evidence available to proceed in respect of the controlling or coercive behaviour charge and that it is no longer in the public interest to prosecute the remaining assault charges,” a CPS spokesperson said.

Ryan Giggs holds the club record for the most appearances for Manchester United, playing 963 times over a span of 23 years. During his time at the club, he achieved great success, winning numerous honors including 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League trophies. He also represented Wales on the international stage, earning 64 caps between 1991 and 2007. 

In 2018, he took on the role of national coach for Wales, but was replaced in late 2020 due to a legal case. Rob Page has since taken over as the national coach.
