Wales appoint Ryan Giggs as Chris Coleman's replacement

Wales appoint Ryan Giggs as Chris Coleman's replacement

The former Manchester United winger made 64 appearances for the country between 1991 and 2007, but never managed to reach a major global tournament.

"I can't wait to start working with the players as we prepare for those crucial games later in the year", he said.

The former winger, 44, has been out of football for 18 months since leaving the coaching staff at Old Trafford when Jose Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal in 2016.

Leading Wales will be Giggs' first permanent job in management.

The managerial spot of the Welsh national team has been vacant ever since former boss Chris Coleman left the job to take over as the manager of Sunderland in the EFL Championship in November past year.

"This is probably the proudest moment of my life to lead the Welsh nation into the next four years with the Euros and then the World Cup".




Provided there is no late hitch, Giggs will be announced as the successor to Chris Coleman, who left for Sunderland in November.

Giggs said he had picked the brains of his former boss at Old Trafford, under whom he spent nearly his entire career.

The new Wales manager has publically admitted his interest in several Premier League jobs since he left United, but has been unsuccessful due to his lack of experience as a coach.

Giggs' first match in charge will be a friendly clash with China on March 21, as the Dragons will begin their preparations for their Euro 2020 qualification campaign.

"Current number two Osian Roberts has been a massive part of the Welsh success for the last 10 years and I would think he would be involved as well".

"So good luck trying to get the players together". After having led the team to the semi-finals of the UEFA Euro 2016, Coleman failed to lead Wales to the qualification for the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation. Without him for their final two 2018 World Cup qualifiers, Wales missed out on a play-off spot and their Russian dream collapsed.
