Chris Coleman: Wales boss open to managerial job overseas

Chris Coleman insists his time in charge of the Wales national side can never be tarnished

Chris Coleman insists his time in charge of the Wales national side can never be tarnished

If this is to be Chris Coleman's final game in charge of Wales, it was spoilt by Panama equalising with seconds left of stoppage time.

Coleman is yet to agree an extension to his Football Association of Wales deal, which expires at the end of November.

"These are our core fans". It was nice they were singing my name and I appreciate that. I didn't mind them booing because at least they paid the money to come and support their country and they're still doing it. I hope that's not going to be the last game.

"I think I am the man to lead them, yeah, but there's a bit more to it than that", Coleman told BBC Sport.

"I think there's still a little hangover because we never got to the playoffs and we're not going to Russian Federation".

It was always going to be a muted occasion after Wales missed out on the World Cup finals, and without a competitive game for almost a year, it was ideal for Coleman to look to the future.

"I said to them, if this is my last experience with them, they have been a pleasure", Coleman said.

"The players are an incredible bunch and they'll keep achieving because they are all at a good age" Coleman said.

"That will burn for a while that, we're all still hurting over that - but that will subside and we will move on".

"That would be a realistic path for me to take whenever my time is up with Wales".

As it happens, he probably should have stepped forward instead of Sam Vokes, whose poor first-half spot-kick was easily saved. It felt appropriate, as conceding late was the bane of their failed World Cup campaign.

Whether that proves to be the final goal of the Coleman era remains to be seen.
