He's since been linked with a plethora of posts - too many to name - from the Premier League down to League Two, however he could now make his managerial debut in the global arena.

According to the Daily Mail, Giggs is said to be the front runner for the job as he has gained the support of the squad for his achievements throughout his career, and those in the board room for his high profile and dedication to obtaining his coaching badges.

Football Association of Wales chiefs are also keen to speak to 78-cap former worldwide Craig Bellamy, while Coleman's right-hand man Osian Roberts is an outside choice.

Manchester United legend and Welshman Ryan Giggs has reportedly been interviewed for his country's job, possibly starting his career in management on the global stage.

Coleman left the Welsh team after failing to qualify for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation and has since joined Sunderland.

The Football Association of Wales hopes to announce its new manager in the next week, before the UEFA Nations League draw takes place in Switzerland on January 24.

Giggs experienced a little time in the Old Trafford dugout acting as interim manager after David Moyes was sacked for underperforming with United.

He subsequently worked as an assistant at United for two years under Louis van Gaal but left when Jose Mourinho took charge in the summer of 2016.

Mark Bowen, Mark Hughes' assistant at Stoke until this month, has also been interviewed for the role as well as Coleman's former assistant Osian Roberts, who has been described as the "most influential man in Welsh football".
