By his decision, he will be outside the team’s leadership in the European Nations Cup, which will be held between June 11 and July 11.
Giggs, 47, will face trial next Wednesday for causing bodily harm to Kate Grevil, his then-girlfriend, in November last year. The coach was also accused of assaulting another woman during the same incident.
In addition, he is the target of an additional charge related to alleged coercive conduct and control between December 2017 and November 2020.
“I have full respect for the legal process and I understand the seriousness of the allegations. I will present my innocence in court and I hope that my name will be cleared,” Giggs said in a statement.
However, the Football Association of Wales said it had “taken note of the attorney general’s decision to indict Ryan Giggs, the coach of the men’s national team,” and decided to remove him from the position.
Former player Robert Page, who was already in the coaching staff, will take charge of the national team, with Albert Stuffenberg as assistant.
“I would like to wish Robert Page, the coaching staff, the players and the fans every success this summer (in the northern hemisphere) in the European Cup,” Giggs said in the statement.
