Wales manager Ryan Giggs appeared in court on Wednesday to deny assaulting two women.
Giggs is accused of causing actual bodily harm to PR executive Kate Greville and the common assault of her younger sister Emma, at his home.
The former Manchester United player is also charged with coercive or controlling behaviour between December 2017 and November 2020.
He appeared before Manchester magistrates.
Court documents indicate he is accused of engaging in controlling or coercive behaviour, which includes repeatedly or continuously engaged in behaviour which was controlling or coercive, namely, used violence, isolation, belittling, humiliation, harassment, degradation and abuse.
Andrea Griffiths, for the prosecution, told the court Giggs had subjected Kate Greville to a deliberate head butt in November 2020 and this had been aggravated by domestic background and being in drink.
