The Welsh national team manager Chris Coleman has revealed that he had to think long and hard about taking the managerial role following the death of Gary Speed. After the demise of the former Bolton Wanderers player, the reigns of the national team were handed to the former Fulham manager.
He has so far been a major disappointment, as he has not been able to get the results many people expected the national team to get due to the presence of players like Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey. The national team is no longer searching for the successor for Ryan Giggs.
The Tottenham winger Gareth Bale helped the club finally break a very bad record against Manchester United in the league after he scored the second goal against the former Premier league champions to record a 3-2 win for Andre Villas-Boas and his men.
