Ryan Giggs has reportedly fled the country after allegations that he conducted an eight-year affair with his sister-in-law. The Sun reports that Ryan's brother Rhodri Giggs has split up with his wife, Natasha, after she was quoted in the News of the World as having had a long-term affair with the Manchester United superstar.
The Manchester United star's image had been already tarnished following allegtions of an affair with model Imogen Thomas before the News of the World claimed on Sunday that he has been having an eight-year affair with his brother's wife
And the Daily Express and Daily Star report that the Welshman has now fled the country to avoid the inevitable media glare after the latest tawdry revelations which now threaten to irrevocably overshadow his playing career.
The 37-year-old winger's glittering career was already tarnished following his alleged affair with model Imogen Thomas and his subsequent attempts to gag the media and Twitter.
With his reputation now seemingly sullied forever, serious questions will now be raised about whether or not his football career will continue as even his aunt joined the chorus of condemnation of a man once universally admired as a clean-living family man.
"It's horrendous. He has no morals," Giggs's paternal aunt Joanna Wilson told the Daily Mirror. "It was one thing having an (alleged) affair with Imogen, but this is said to be with his brother's wife, for God's sake."
Ryan Giggs has been named on the shortlist for the 2011 Golden Foot Awards despite allegations that he had an affair with his sister-in-law. The judging committee of the Golden Foot Awards - the top lifetime achievement award for European footballers - gave the Welshman some positive news by including him on their ten-strong shortlist.
The award - presented by Prince Albert of Monaco - honours players over the age of 29 for, "their fair play, their personality and for the esteem of the public and football experts" throughout their careers, with nominees chosen by a global panel of journalists and the ultimate winner voted for by the public at www.goldenfoot.com.
Regardless of the scandals which have blighted Giggs over the last few months, the Welshman would have struggled to follow Francesco Totti in lifting the trophy on October 10. The other players on a glittering shortlist are a Who's Who of recent football greats: David Beckham, Gianluigi Buffon, Iker Casillas, Didier Drogba, Samuel Eto'o, Carles Puyol, Raul, Xavi, and Javier Zanetti.
