After the domestic abuse retrial was dismissed, Welsh football coach is getting closer to making his managerial comeback with Salford.

After being exonerated of allegations related to domestic abuse, former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs is allegedly close to rejoining the Salford City management team.

According to The Sun, the former Manchester United winger is “ready” to take over as manager of the League Two team if things don’t turn around.

After being accused of using coercive and manipulative tactics on his ex-girlfriend Kate Greville between August 2017 and November 2020, the Welshman resigned as manager of Wales in June 2022.

After a four-week trial and more than 20 hours of deliberation in August 2022, the jury was unable to make a decision on the subject at hand.

Domestic abuse charges against Giggs were withdrawn in July, meaning that a retrial was abandoned. Giggs plead not guilty to the charges, which also included assaulting Kate’s sister Emma, and judge Hilary Manley ruled he was found not guilty on all counts.

Now, The Sun claims the 49-year-old could replace manager Neil Wood at Salford; where he is a co-owner alongside Class of ’92 team-mates Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, David Beckham – plus Singaporean businessman Peter Lim.
The Ammies sit 19th in League Two, having lost four games in a row, but have targets to reach the play-offs for the second season running, after finishing seventh last term.

Giggs had a 48 percent win record as Wales boss between January 2018 and November 2020 during his 25 games as manager. Stand-in Wales head coach Rob Page succeeded him and has remained in charge ever since.
