Next Sunderland manager: Chris Coleman on brink of accepting Black Cats job
Nov 18, 2017, 00:24
Chris Coleman has made the surprise decision to step down as Wales manager, the FAW confirmed on Friday evening.
His future as Wales manager had been in doubt while he waited on assurances regarding members of his backroom staff and he now takes over from Simon Grayson, who was sacked as Sunderland manager on October 31.
Coleman led Wales to the semi-finals of UEFA EURO 2016, the nation's greatest achievement in their history in the competition.
Assistant manager Kit Symons has also resigned and is expected to join Coleman at the Stadium of Light.
Coleman is said to be meeting with the Welsh FA's board on Friday to talk about whether he plans to stay on or not and, whilst the FAW remain keen on retaining his services, the 47-year-old could look to call time on his four-year spell in charge.
The former Fulham and Real Sociedad boss struggled at first and Wales' 6-1 World Cup qualifying defeat in Serbia led to some fans calling for his dismissal.
Chris Coleman as Wales boss
Disappointment followed as Wales failed to reach the 2018 World Cup finals in Russian Federation.
"We are extremely disappointed to see Chris' tenure as Wales manager come to an end".
"There was a kind of player relationship between the squad and the manager so they'll be gutted hearing that news as well". However, he would face a hard job if he took the role.
There is no doubt that Coleman is an experienced manager and would be a good appointment by Sunderland.
There was speculation that Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill had turned down an opportunity to manage the club and Barnsley's Paul Heckingbottom had also been heavily linked with the vacancy.
Failing that, Coleman could opt to take his leave and try his hand at club football management for the first time since leaving Greek side Larissa in 2011.
