Chris Coleman quits Wales to take vacant position at Championship club Sunderland

Chris Coleman quits Wales to take vacant position at Championship club Sunderland

Ex-Wales head coach Chris Coleman is reportedly on Sunderland's radar, and former Newcastle United star Jermaine Jenas gives his take.

But Coleman was to lead Wales to their first major tournament for 58 years before a last-four defeat against eventual winners Portugal in last summer's championships.

The 47-year-old took charge of the national team in January 2012 and played a key role in helping Wales reach the semi-final of the 2016 European championship.

However, Wales failed to book their place in the 2018 World Cup finals, finishing third in Group D behind Serbia and the Republic of Ireland.

His future with Wales was in doubt from the moment they failed to qualify for Russian Federation 2018.

"We are extremely disappointed to see Chris' tenure as Wales manager come to an end".

NASDAQ shows a rate of 2.9 with its quick ratio of 2.3. 5,465 are held by Whalerock Point Prns Limited Liability Company. September 30 investment analysts at Evercore ISI maintained a stock rating of "Outperform" targeting a price of $65.00.

Ahead of Saturday's clash with Millwall, for which caretaker boss Robbie Stockdale will be in charge, Sunderland have not won a home league game since December previous year.

The Wales Football Association have since released a statement announcing the departure.

"We wish Chris the very best of luck for the future as he returns to club management, a desire for which he has always been honest and open about".

They have been without a manager since sacking Simon Grayson last month after one win in their opening 16 league matches left them bottom of the standings.

He is expected to take over at perennial relegationfodder Sunderland before the end of the weekend and take charge of his first game on Tuesday evening.
