WALES will be looking to go on a brilliant run at the World Cup but will be doing so WITHOUT Ryan Giggs in the dugout.

Giggs was Wales boss since 2018 and managed to steer them through the Euro qualifiers and into Euro 2020 before Rob Page took charge.

Why isn’t Ryan Giggs managing Wales at the World Cup?

Giggs was readying his squad for their long-awaited Euros campaign back in 2020 before being arrested in April.

Giggs, 47, was charged with coercive control and actual bodily harm in relation to his ex-girlfriend, while he was also charged with assault by beating relating to a second woman.

“We have authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Ryan Giggs with engaging in behaviour which was controlling or coercive and assault occasioning actual bodily harm,” the Crown Prosecution Service announced.

As a result, the Welsh FA announced Page would be taking Giggs place as manager for the Euros.

The head coach was then named the manager of the national team on a permanent basis as the controversy surrounding Giggs continued.
