THE SEARCH FOR Wales’ next football manager will end tomorrow, with Chris Coleman expected to be handed the reins.
The FAW have scheduled a midday press conference at St David’s Hotel in Cardiff Bay, Press Association are reporting.
Former internationals Coleman and John Hartson are in the running to succeed former team-mate, Gary Speed, who took his own life in November.
“Every manager wants one day to be in charge of his country and I’m no different,” said Coleman at the weekend.
“But ideally for me the opportunity for me wouldn’t be here. It’s only here because of one reason, we know that, and I wish it wasn’t. But of course if I do get the position I’ll be a very proud Welshman.”
Coleman is understood to have met Welsh FA chiefs since he quit as manager of Greek club Larissa in recent weeks.
Ryan Giggs and Ian Rush were also touted as possible figureheads, to work alongside Speed’s assistant coach Raymond Verheijen and coach Osian Roberts.
