Giggs “was also charged with one count of coercive and controlling behavior between December 2017 and November 2020.”
Giggs is scheduled to appear in Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on April 28, GMP police added.
Later this year, Wales will take part in the Euro 2020 Championship, but the assault case Giggs faces means he won’t be in charge of the squad.
“A meeting of the FAW Board of Directors will be called to discuss these developments and their impact on the Association and the national team,” the statement added.
“The FAW will not be making any further comment at this time.”
Giggs was appointed manager of Wales in January 2018 and led them to qualifying for the UEFA Euro 2020 Championship, which was postponed to take place this summer after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the postponement of the tournament.
He has enjoyed an exceptional club and international career winning 64 caps for Wales and a series of trophies with Manchester United, including 13 Premier League titles and two UEFA Champions Leagues.
