Ryan Giggs interviewed for Wales job

Share

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) is expected to announce Chris Coleman's successor in the coming days after completing a managerial search that saw Ryan Giggs, Osian Roberts, Craig Bellamy and Mark Bowen interviewed for the post that has been vacant since November.

Giggs has been tipped to end his 18-month absence from football, the former Manchester United winger having been out of the game since leaving his coaching role at Old Trafford in 2016.

The interviews took place on Thursday (Jan 11), overseen by Jonathan Ford, the FAW chief executive, and it is anticipated that a decision will be made quickly, with Giggs now the front runner.

Louis Van Gaal was chosen next to lead the Red Devils to glory and made the one club man his assistant manager, mentoring him with the long term vision of being replaced by him.

Giggs is said to have spent the last few weeks fine tuning his presentation style ahead of the interview which included a detailed overview of the country's youth development program.

Asked last month if he would consider the Wales job, Giggs told us: "Of course I'm interested".

And with Wales out of the upcoming World Cup in Russian Federation, a change of tactical edge may exponate their chances of traveling to the biggest sporting event on the planet in four years of time. "Obviously that is one of the top jobs".

Nevertheless, it seems like a better job awaits him at the worldwide level, as the former Welsh global has gone through an interview with the Wales national team for a managerial position, as per Sky Sports.

However, doubts remain over whether he would want to work with Coleman's former assistant Roberts, who previously gave his support to Giggs.
