Manchester United legend, Ryan Giggs, is on trial after being accused of headbutting his ex-girlfriend Kate Greville.
Greville claimed the former Wales manager violently headbutted her in the face which left her bleeding.
According to reports, “the incident happened almost two years ago on November 1, 2020, when Greville and Giggs were together with their friends at the Stock Exchange Hotel in Manchester.
Ms Greville said, “He came at me from nowhere and headbutted me in my face. I was in shock. I fell backwards, my lip instantly swelled. I put my hands over my mouth and I could taste the blood.
Opening the case, Peter Wright QC, prosecuting, told jurors at crown court in Manchester: “He is, you may know, a former professional footballer of considerable repute. In his heyday he played locally for Manchester United and internationally for Wales. This is a story of control and coercion”. The relationship between Greville and Giggs – who denies all the charges against him – was “punctuated by acts of violence and volatility.
Giggs’ former partner says he “wanted sex all the time,” and would call “up to 50 times an hour” and had relationships “with eight other women” as the court heard how he “flipped” and “dragged” her out of hotel room naked.”
