LONDON ( Associated Press) – A prosecutor has announced he will show “a much uglier and more sinister side” to one of Manchester United’s great idols, Ryan Giggs, as his former teammate is facing trial for assault and coercive conduct. Starting on Monday.
Prosecutor Peter Wright said, “He had a personal life of both physical and psychological abuse from the woman he claims to love.”

Wright says that on November 1, Giggs and Greville went out with friends and went to a hotel, where Greville told the former player that she was going to break up with him because of his behavior and because she knew he was cheating on her. is giving.
Greville leaves the hotel early and decides to remove his belongings from Giggs’ house before returning. He asked his sister to accompany him.
However, Giggs returned earlier than expected and tried to stop Giggs from leaving, which led to a physical altercation, according to the prosecutor. Amid the conflict, Greville’s sister was elbowed in the face, the prosecutor said.
“At this point, the defendant completely lost control and intentionally beheaded Kate, injuring her lip,” he said.
