The future of Ryan Giggs as manager of Wales seems uncertain after the Welsh FA announced today the former Manchester United winger wouldn't be involved in the country's upcoming games. It follows Giggs being arrested for assault on Sunday following a domestic disturbance.
In a statement, the Football Association of Wales confirmed that Giggs wouldn't be involved in the upcoming fixtures, including the Irish game.
The Football Association of Wales and Ryan Giggs have mutually agreed that he will not be involved in the upcoming international camp.
Our agreed immediate priority is preparing the team for the upcoming international matches.
Robert Page, with Ryan’s support, will take charge for the next three matches against the USA, Republic of Ireland and Finland supported by Albert Stuivenberg.
The Cymru squad for these upcoming matches will be announced on Thursday 5th November.
The FAW will not be making any further comment at this current time.
As reported in The Sun, Giggs was arrested on Sunday in his home in Manchester following an alleged row with his "on-off girlfriend" Kate Greville. Greater Manchester Police confirmed to The Sun that an incident took place and an arrest was made.
Police were called at 10.05pm on Sunday to reports of a disturbance. A woman in her 30s sustained minor injuries but did not require any treatment.
A 46-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of section 47 assault and section 39 common assault.
Giggs denies any wrongdoing and is cooperating with police, according to a statement released by his representative.
