Manchester United Legend, Ryan Giggs is expected to be named the new Manager of the Wales senior National football team later today.
The former Wales winger is expected to be named as Chris Coleman’s successor.
The Football Association of Wales said it would announce the identity of the new manager on Twitter ahead of a 2 pm press conference at Hensol Castle in the Vale of Glamorgan.
Legendary Giggs, 44, has been the clear favourite for the role since he declared his interest in the job last month, saying:
“I’ve played for Wales and I’ve said that I want to go back into coaching.
“Obviously that is one of the top jobs.”
This will be Ryan Giggs’ first permanent job in management, although he was in interim charge at Manchester United for four games at the end of the 2013-14 season after West ham Boss David Moyes was sacked.
Giggs was interviewed for the Wales job last week, as was his former international team-mate Craig Bellamy and Osian Roberts, Coleman’s former assistant who is also the FAW’s technical director.
Former Wales defender Mark Bowen was also interviewed after leaving his role as Stoke’s assistant manager a few days earlier.
Giggs, who won 64 Wales caps between 1991 and 2007, has been out of football for 18 months since leaving the coaching staff at Manchester United.
Ryan spent two seasons as Louis van Gaal’s assistant coach, but he left Old Trafford in the summer of 2016 following Jose Mourinho’s appointment as manager
