Official: Man United Legend Giggs Named Wales Boss

Ryan Giggs has been appointed Wales manager on a four-year contract.
The 44-year-old former Wales captain and Manchester United winger succeeds Chris Coleman, who left for Sunderland in November.

Giggs had long been a target for the Football Association of Wales (FAW) and was the favourite for the role once Coleman departed after Wales failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
Giggs said in a statement: "I am so proud to have been given the honour of managing the national team. 

"The challenges that we have ahead of us with the Nations League and qualification for Uefa Euro 2020 excite me a great deal. 

"I can't wait to start working with the players as we prepare for those crucial games later in the year."
Giggs won 64 caps between 1991 and 2007 but was unpopular with some Wales fans for missing many internationals, especially friendlies.
