The Football Association of Wales (FAW) has revealed that they will make an appointment on Monday and the report claims that Jonathan Ford, the chief executive of the FAW has made a decision to offer Giggs the job.

After failing to qualify for Russian Federation the new manager will first have the new UEFA Nations League to compete in, with Wales in the second division, before qualifying for the 2020 Euros begins. "We haven't been at a World Cup since 1958 and I want to get this group of players there and be a part of it".

The 44-year-old former Welshman is on his first assignment as a head coach, having previously served as United's assistant coach for the 2013-2014 season.

The new Wales manager has publically admitted his interest in several Premier League jobs since he left United, but has been unsuccessful due to his lack of experience as a coach.

Giggs won 64 caps between 1991 and 2007 and captained his country - but he was criticised for regularly pulling out of squads and especially for missing friendly matches.

Giggs was interviewed alongside Coleman's former assistant Osian Roberts, as well as former Wales striker Craig Bellamy and Mark Bowen.

The United legend's task will be to keep the team at that level and develop them further, so Giggs' first foray into full-time management will be a hard one.

Giggs's contract, which will reportedly take him up to the 2022 World Cup, was tied up over the weekend. Reaching the semi-finals of the competition, only to be beaten by eventual winners Portugal, the likes of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey give Giggs plenty to feel positive about.
