CAIRO – 9 December 2017: Former Welsh captain Ryan Giggs revealed on Saturday that he hopes to be the next coach of the Wales national team.
“Of course I'm interested. I have not talked to anyone yet, but I would be very interested. I played for Wales and have always said that I would like to go back to training, and this is one of the most attractive positions,” Giggs told the press. He represented Wales’ national team between 1991 and 2007.
The Football Association of Wales (FAW) is searching for a coach to succeed coach Chris Coleman. Coleman left the position to coach Sunderland.
Former West Bromwich Albion coach Tony Pulis, former Welsh national team player John Hartson and Craig Bellamy are the other nominees for the position.
Jonathan Ford, FAW executive director, revealed that he prefers a Welsh manager for the national team. He said, “We have always preferred Welsh people, because the passion is there; although, he could also be a foreigner, but what is clear is that he will not be English."
