Welsh FA want national legend should boss join Hull City

The Welsh FA will offer Ryan Giggs the national team manager job, should Chris Coleman join Hull City.

That’s according to the Mirror, who believe the Welsh FA have already set their contingency plan should Coleman depart for the KCOM Stadium. The Tigers are still looking for a new manager after Steve Bruce resigned from his post.

The FAW rejected Hull City’s first offer, although the Premier League side are set to come back with a contract worth £1.5million-a-year, three times what Coleman is currently paid to manage the national team.

Coleman is a wanted man after Wales’ incredibly successful Euro 2016 campaign, and are concerned about how unsettled he would be if they refused to let him join Hull. They have created a plan to approach Ryan Giggs as a replacement, with the 42-year-old currently unemployed. He was not kept at Old Trafford when Jose Mourinho came in.

Giggs played 64 times for Wales, and would be a popular announcement.

Coleman is the preferred option for the Tigers, despite interviewing Roberto Martinez and Gianfranco Zola about the role.
