Ryan Giggs has resigned as Wales national team coach

The rumor came true. Ryan Giggs has resigned as Wales national team coach. Giggs has been charged with torturing his ex-girlfriend and his sister. The trial is set to begin on August 6 in Manchester Crown Court.

Giggs announced the resignation of Gareth Bale before taking a stand.

Giggs has been on leave since allegations of violence against women surfaced in November 2020. In his absence, Wales qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1958 under Robert Page.

Rumors of Giggs' resignation had been circulating for months. This time, the 48-year-old former footballer has clearly announced his resignation.

Giggs said: "After much thought, I am stepping down as Wales national team coach. It was a great honor to represent my country. But it should be noted that the Wales FA, the coaching staff and the players are preparing for the tournament with clarity, assurance and without rumors about the head coach. I am very fortunate to have enjoyed so many memorable moments during my three years in charge of the team. ‘
