Giggs open to Wales job

Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs says he is very interested in the vacant Wales job and would relish the opportunity to manage his country.

The former Wales skipper is just one of a number of names linked with the position, including his former team-mates John Hartson and Craig Bellamy.

Giggs has been linked with a number of club roles over recent months and was even connected with the job at Everton before former England boss Sam Allardyce secured the position at Goodison Park.

With the position with the Welsh FA still available after the departure of Chris Coleman, Giggs is still keen on taking up the role.

"Of course I'm interested," told Sky Sports.

"I've not spoken to anyone at the moment but I'd definitely be interested.

"I've played for Wales and I've said that I want to go back into coaching. Obviously that is one of the top jobs. I played for United; I played for Wales."

The task of the next manager will be to ensure Wales qualify for Euro 2020 and the side are 66/1 to win the tournament, while France are priced at 7/2 and reigning champions Portugal are available at 12/1.
