Chris Coleman convinced to rethink standing down as Wales boss

Share

FAW Chief Executive Jonathan Ford is understood to have told Coleman that he wants him to commit to a new contract and hopes to sit down with the 47-year-old before their friendly fixtures scheduled for November.

Chris Coleman has moved to distance himself from talking about his future as Wales manager following the country's hugely disappointing defeat at the hands of the Republic of Ireland. "Everything was geared towards next summer".

A powerless spectator as Wales's World Cup dreams were crushed by the Republic of Ireland, Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has arrived at a crucial tipping point in his career.

Bale is known to be a fan of Coleman and echoed Roberts' sentiments when asked about his national team boss at the start of June.

Obesity rates have stabilised in high-income countries in recent years, though levels remain unacceptably high, Ezzati added. This may be a result of increased consumption of highly processed and energy-dense foods, the report's authors said.

"We want him to stay because what he's given this nation is something that's never been done before".

Coleman's contract expires next summer but it is reported that discussions between Coleman and the players took place at the stadium last night and at the team hotel in Cardiff after the game.

Roberts, who has been Coleman's assistant since he was appointed Wales manager in January 2012, added: "He couldn't have taken on the job at a more hard time and what we've collectively achieved since then has been incredible".

Wales have not qualified for a World Cup since 1958, although they reached the semi-finals of Euro 2016.

Among the nuggets he came away with is why Kaepernick has remained muted (the QB even politely declined another interview ). The confusion started after Jason La Canfora talked about Kaepernick on the network's pregame show , "The NFL Today ".

This has led to reports that Coleman may step down as manager but Gunter has said that he should stay and help them to qualify for Euro 2020.

"There is no doubt that Chris loves this job, " Roberts said.

"When the dust settles, we'll see where we're going".

But Roberts insists the future of Welsh football remains bright despite their World Cup exit.

Taylor's grounder to shortstop in the seventh and Zobrist robbed Trea Turner of a hit with a solid play at second in the eighth. The Cubs are 5-1 in potential series-clinching games since 2015, compared to 1-8 in such games over the previous 100 years.

"There's certainly more success on the horizon for this group of players".
