Ryan Giggs interviewed for vacant Wales manager's job

Coleman takes a swipe at possible Wales successor Mark Bowen

Ryan Giggs on the cusp of landing first job in management with Wales

Nevertheless, it seems like a better job awaits him at the worldwide level, as the former Welsh global has gone through an interview with the Wales national team for a managerial position, as per Sky Sports.

The former Wales global joins a host of other candidates who have been interviewed by the Welsh FA which include, Craig Bellamy, Osian Roberts and Mark Bowen, with the Welsh officials understood to be aiming to make the appointment of Chris Coleman's successor as early as Monday.

"Bowen should do well, as I remember when I was the manager and he was talking on TV he had all the answers after the game", Coleman said sarcastically.

"But being a Welshman myself they will have my support whoever gets it".

Bellamy, who played alongside Giggs for Wales, has also made no secret of his desire to manage his country, saying he will "probably be interested in it for the rest of my life". I spoke to them before they appointed Bob Bradley.

He's since been linked with a plethora of posts - too many to name - from the Premier League down to League Two, however he could now make his managerial debut in the worldwide arena.

The FAW is keen to make an appointment before the UEFA Nations League draw, which takes place in Switzerland on January 24.

Giggs and Bellamy were interviewed despite never having held full-time managerial roles, though former Manchester United winger Giggs was the caretaker boss at Old Trafford in the wake of David Moyes' departure back in 2014.

It is understood that Bowen, who was working as Mark Hughes' assistant manager at Stoke until last Saturday, is the final candidate.
