Wales boss Coleman says not interested in Palace job


Coleman yesterday named a 26-man training squad ahead of Wales' crunch World Cup qualifier in Serbia on June 11.

Liverpool hot prospects Ben Woodburn and Harry Wilson have been called up among a number of new faces to the Wales senior squad for the Portugal training camp.

Unsurprisingly, the 46-year-old has been linked with a number of posts since his exploits in France last summer and he turned down the chance to manage Hull City and Swansea City earlier this season.

And Chris Coleman has decided they are worthy becoming a more permanent fixture in the Wales squad, giving them their second inclusion.

"It would look cowardly because we're going back to Serbia where I got my backside spanked".

"I had a good time at the Palace but I'm only thinking about Serbia".

"All I'm thinking about is Serbia".

I can't control what's said about me outside Wales. "All I care about now is Wales".


Coleman, who has a year left on his contract with the Football Association of Wales, said he was only thinking about the match against Serbia.

"There is a little bit of spice to me because of what happened there previously, but it is a game I am really looking forward to".

Wales are four points behind Serbia and the Republic of Ireland at the halfway stage, but a runner-up spot will be good enough for them to contest a November play-off.

"I've total belief in my players".

"We dealt with that disappointment a while ago now - we once went to Belgium without Gareth Bale and got a great result with Aaron Ramsey running the show".

Elsewhere, Chris Coleman will be without Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale who misses this one through suspension.

"People are prepared to step up, I'm quite confident of that".
