Coleman left everyone in no doubt about his thoughts on ever becoming England boss
This was Chris Coleman’s superb response when asked if he’d consider taking over from Sam Allardyce as England boss.
The Wales boss had strong words when the prospect was raised and left journalists in no doubt about his views on the matter.
Speaking at the Wales squad announcement, he said: “My answer would be a big fat no.”
After Sam Allardyce’s removal as England manager earlier this week, Coleman had been touted as a possible contender for the England hot seat.
Coleman had some forthright views on how the FA should handle the new appointment.
He said: “I think the next England manager should be an Englishman.
“It shouldn’t be anyone from overseas, I don’t care what his record is.
“Unless you’re from that country you can never know what it means to represent that country.
Chris Coleman had a great response ready
“You’d never see France, Germany or Italy looking outside – so why should England?”
“They should be thinking of Gareth Southgate and Steve Bruce.
“Certainly not a Welshman, and certainly not THIS Welshman.”
Coleman’s answers are sure to be popular with Welsh fans, who have seen their manager publicly distance himself from a number of managerial vacancies in the last month.
