Ryan Giggs interviewed for vacant Wales manager's job

Ryan Giggs interviewed for vacant Wales manager's job

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.

Giggs remains the favourite to succeed Coleman and return to football 18 months after leaving his coaching role at Manchester United.

The FAW have taken their time in considering which direction they want to go in but have now interviewed four candidates and will pick one before the draw for the Uefa Nations League on January 24.

Former players Ryan Giggs and Craig Bellamy are among the candidates being considered by Wales to replace Chris Coleman, with an appointment expected this month.

But he would not be a popular appointment with some Wales fans, who questioned his commitment during his 16-year worldwide playing career.

But he was criticised for regularly pulling out of Wales squads and especially for missing friendly matches.

The former Wales captain is still after his first position in management after leaving Manchester United when the club appointed Jose Mourinho as their new boss.

He has made no secret of his desire to land a top level managerial job, having been linked with various positions including Swansea back in 2016 before Bob Bradley was appointed.

It is understood that Bellamy and Roberts, who is the FAW's technical director, also have their supporters at the Welsh FA.

The former Newcastle, Liverpool and Blackburn forward is now an academy coach at Cardiff City, where he ended his playing career in 2014.

"I know the players and the system".

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.
