Giggs in talks to be new Wales coach

Giggs in talks to be new Wales coach

Giggs is reported to be one of a number of candidates being considered for the vacancy by the seven-man Football Association of Wales (FAW) committee.

Former Wales internationals Ryan Giggs and Craig Bellamy have both interviewed for the vacant national manager's job.

Giggs, who made 64 appearances for Wales during his playing career, has been linked with succeeding Chris Coleman, who left to manage Championship side Sunderland after Wales' failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

However, Red Devils legend departed from Old Trafford two years ago, after the appointment of Jose Mourinho, and was teased with a Swansea job, which ultimately failed to materialise.

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. A FAW press spokesman did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment on Friday.

Also, EVP Kathryn Mcnamara Corley sold 4,000 shares of the company's stock in a transaction that occurred on Tuesday, January 2nd. Discover Financial Services (DFS ) have shown a high EPS growth of 5.30% in the last 5 years and has earnings rose of 12.30% yoy.

Roberts knows the Welsh system inside out, as he has worked throughout all age grades. "We've got a world-class player in Gareth Bale, some great players just beneath, some really good young players coming through like Ethan Ampadu and Ben Woodburn", said Giggs in an interview with the Times last month.

The likes of Craig Bellamy, Mark Hughes, Carl Robinson and Tony Pulis have all been put forward as possible replacements, but it's Giggs who now leads the way at the top of the betting market at 1/3, after news broke of his interview.

The former winger has little experience in management but the British nation have had a history of hiring their former players.

"It would be a great job".

So far Giggs has only four caretaker matches at Man Utd on his CV, and that was way back at the end of the 2013/14 season following the sacking of David Moyes.
