Wales want veteran Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs to take over from current incumbent Chris Coleman as the Red Dragons’ next national team manager, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) are expected to part company with Coleman following next month’s friendly international with Finland.

Coleman, who is also being targeted at present by Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace to replace the recently departed Ian Holloway in the dugout at Selhurst Park, has reportedly lost the confidence of the FAW after a poor recent qualifying campaign for next summer’s Fifa World Cup finals in Brazil, with Wales eventually finishing second bottom of their section, one place below Home Nations’ rivals Scotland.

And it is understood that the hierarchy at FAW want the former Wales international to take on the role of steering the Principality to Euro 2016 in France, possibly with the help of an experienced coach alongside the Red Devils legend as his right-hand man.

However, with the 39-year-old still contracted to the Premier League champions until the end of this season, and now being involved in the coaching setup at Old Trafford by new United manager David Moyes, the FAW’s hopes of persuading Giggs to take on the role appear slim at best.
