Giggs interviewed as Wales continue manager search

He was assistant to Louis van Gaal at Manchester United before taking job on an interim basis

The interviews took place on Thursday (Jan 11), overseen by Jonathan Ford, the FAW chief executive, and it is anticipated that a decision will be made quickly, with Giggs now the front runner.

He is the FAW technical director and was a highly influential figure in Wales's success under Coleman in his role as the assistant manager.

Giggs is thought to have backing by some former players in his quest for the Wales job and spoke about his interest last month.

The 44-year-old earned 64 Wales caps during his distinguished playing career with Manchester United, who he managed for four games on an interim basis in 2014.

Hue Jackson's voice cracked briefly as he tried to quantify the unquantifiable. "This part of the journey is over with", he said. Seven of his carries went for five or more yards, breaking four of them for 10-plus yards including a long of 21.

Giggs has been without a club since then, although he held meetings with Swansea about their vacancy in the autumn of 2016, before the Swans ultimately went in another direction.

The likes of Craig Bellamy, Mark Hughes, Carl Robinson and Tony Pulis have all been put forward as possible replacements, but it's Giggs who now leads the way at the top of the betting market at 1/3, after news broke of his interview. Robinson was something of a mentor to both of Wales's two major players when they emerged onto the worldwide scene. "I've not spoken to anyone at the moment but I'd definitely be interested".

Coleman enjoyed a very successful spell in in charge of Wales, memorably leading them to the semi-finals at Euro 2016.

Chris Coleman left the role in November after Wales failed to qualify for this summer's World Cup and FAW officials are keen to make a swift appointment - before the draw for the Nations League on January 24.
