“He hit me in the head and elbowed me in the face” – shocking revelations in the case against Ryan Giggs

“He hit me in the head and elbowed me in the face” – shocking revelations in the case against Ryan Giggs

Wales legend Ryan Giggs could face up to five years in prison if found guilty of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend Kate Greville and her younger sister Emma. This became clear after the start of the legal process, where shocking revelations against the former football player were brought to light.

The prosecution produced evidence of the violence Giggs had inflicted on the two ladies. Prosecutor Peter Wright said the player’s private life was involved with “numerous physical and mental abuses” between August 2017 and November 2020.

Giggs is also accused of assaulting the two sisters at his home on November 1, 2020.

“This is a story of control and coercion over a woman who thought she was loved and respected. Mr Giggs is adored for his skills on the pitch but behind closed doors he has a much more ugly and sinister side to his character. Including cheating. “In the end, after years of upheaval, when Kate Greville came to her senses, she realized that she had to remove herself from his sphere of influence,” the prosecutor’s office said.

And they produced shocking evidence of what happened between the three on the date in question. Then Kate wanted to move out of the shared home and go to a hotel, but was extinguished by Giggs right at the time of baggage claim.

“As she was leaving the defendant’s home address, he returned and began arguing with her and trying to stop her leaving. In the ensuing scuffle, they fought on the floor before Ms Greville’s sister intervened. Mr Mr Giggs deliberately elbowed her in the jaw, after which the argument moved into the kitchen, where Mr Giggs headbutts his girlfriend in the face, causing her to drain and bruise. After that, Kate’s sister Emma called the police and the ex-footballer was arrested,” explained the prosecutor in the case.



However, Giggs’ lawyer was adamant that his client had always been more temperamental but had never crossed the line. They were called as witnesses in the case to confirm this statement Sir Alex Ferguson and Gary Neville.

The team of Giggs, who was forced to resign as Wales manager, are adamant of his innocence and are hoping for an acquittal. The lawyer’s contention is that the injuries to Kate Greville’s face were from falling to the floor, not from a blow. It is also alleged that Giggs was kicked in the face and the sister also stepped in to inflict violence.

“It’s about a nasty and ridiculous lieeven if there was some physical contact, it was accidental and she was not hit on purpose,” the football legend’s team claimed.

The trial is due to end in 10 days, and at preliminary hearings Giggs denied all charges and pleaded not guilty. However, the prosecution’s evidence, supported by the testimony of the police officers who came to the scene, is solid and it is very likely that conviction.

This is not the first time Giggs’ personal life has been shrouded in scandal, after it was revealed in 2011 that he had an eight-year relationship with Natasha Leaver, the wife of his brother Rhodri Giggs.
