Giggs “has also been charged with one count of coercive and controlling behaviour between December 2017 and November 2020.”
Giggs is due to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on April 28, added GMP Police.
Later this year Wales will compete at the Euro 2020 Championship, but the assault case Giggs faces means he won’t be in charge of the team.
“An FAW Board meeting will be convened to discuss these developments and its impact on the Association and the National Team,” added the statement.
“The FAW will not be making any further comment at this current time.”
Giggs was appointed Wales manager in January 2018 and had steered them to qualification for the UEFA Euro 2020 Championship, which has been rescheduled to take place this summer after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the tournament’s postponement.
He enjoyed a stellar club and international career winning 64 caps for Wales and an array of trophies with Manchester United, including 13 Premier League titles and two UEFA Champions Leagues.
