Fans urge Cole­man to stay on

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

CHRIS Cole­man says he re­mains in the dark over his fu­ture even though he be­lieves he is the man to take Wales for­ward.

Cole­man was in charge for the 49th time as Panama’s stop­page-time equaliser de­nied Wales vic­tory in a 1-1 draw in Cardiff.

The f ocus now t urns t o whether Cole­man can agree a new deal to re­main as man­ager, with the 47-year-old seek­ing cer­tain guar­an­tees from the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion of Wales over his back­room staff.

Those talks are ex­pected to re­sume this week and Cole­man — the most suc­cess­ful man­ager in Wales’ his­tory af­ter guiding them to the semi-fi­nals of Euro 2016 — ad­mits he is un­able to pre­dict the out­come.

“I hon­estly don’t know what’s go­ing to hap­pen,” Cole­man said. “I don’t know if that’s my last game yet or not.”

Wales fans at the Cardiff City Sta­dium left the FAW hi­er­ar­chy in no doubt as to what they want to hap­pen. They showed their sup­port for Cole­man from the first minute as they urged him to stay.

Wales looked on course for vic­tory throughTom Lawrence’s 75th-minute strike, only for Ar­mando Cooper to equalise.
