Chris Coleman set to become new Wales boss

Updated: January 12, 2012

Chris Coleman looks likely to succeed the late Gary Speed as Wales head coach later this month.

The former Fulham and Coventry manager will take over from his close friend after resigning as manager of Greek second division side Larissa this week.

The former Welsh defender has support from Welsh FA council members and has been contacted about the vacancy. The decision needs to be ratified by the executive, led by Jonathan Ford, for it to receive formal approval.

Coleman still has to resolve certain contract issues with Larissa but once they have been ironed out he will be able to take charge ahead of the memorial match for Speed against Costa Rica next month.
