Giggs insists he is reluctant to mess up Wales’ preparations for the 2022 World Cup, while still defending his case.

“As has been well publicized, I plead not guilty to the criminal charges heard at Manchester Crown Court.

‘While I am confident in our judicial process, I wish the case would have been heard earlier to allow me to continue my managerial responsibilities. Through no one’s fault, this case has been adjourned.”

“I don’t want the country’s preparations for the World Cup to be affected, destabilized, or threatened in any way by the continuing interest surrounding this case.”
