Sponsors stay silent on Ryan Giggs

Wednesday June 8, 2011

None of the sponsors who helped Ryan Giggs amass an estimated £34-million fortune have come forward to say if they still back him.

The private life of Manchester United star has come under intense scrutiny since it was revealed he was the footballer at the centre of the super-injunction furore

Ryan – who is battling to save his marriage with wife Stacey – has a deal with Reebok, reportedly worth £20m.

Other contracts are with Swiss watch firms Patek Philippe, Cyma, car manufacturer Citroen and phone company Saudi Telecom.

These have been jeopardised by claims of an alleged affair with Big Brother contestant Imogen Thomas. 

His sister-in-law Natasha Giggs has also claimed she conducted an eight-year relationship with the footballer. She is married to his brother Rhodri.

And Natasha alleged that the player was seeing a third unnamed woman.
