Ryan Giggs is expected to be named the new Wales boss after the Welsh FA called a news conference for Monday afternoon in Cardiff.
The Manchester United legend was one of four people interviewed for the job, along with Craig Bellamy, Osian Roberts and Mark Bowen.
However, the 44-year-old looks to have secured the position left vacant by Chris Coleman, who left the role after failing to qualify for this summer’s World Cup.
As a player, Giggs chalked up 64 caps for his country between 1991 and 2007, although his commitment to the cause was often questioned due to a penchant for missing friendlies and pulling out of squads.
Giggs’ managerial experience to date adds up to just a handful of games in the Manchester United hot-seat after David Moyes was sacked at the tail-end of 2013/14.
However, he did spent the following two seasons as Louis van Gaal’s right-hand man (which may or may not have worked in his favour).
Giggs failed in a bid to bag the Swansea City job in 2016 but now gets a chance to oversee a Welsh side desperate to put a disappointing World Cup qualifying campaign behind them.
One wonders how understanding he’ll be when managers start pulling their players out of Welsh squads in the coming months and years.
