Last updated : 17 November 2017 By CNS Sport/AO

Former Coventry City manager Chris Coleman has resigned his position as manager of the Wales National Football team.

Coleman helped Wales to the Euro 2016 Semi-Final but then they failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

FAW chief executive Jonathan Ford said about Coleman's departure: "We are extremely disappointed to see Chris' tenure come to an end.

"The FAW and Wales as a nation will be eternally grateful for the job he has done over the last six years, from travelling the length and breadth of Wales outside of the media spotlight to talk to players and supporters, to guiding us to the semi-finals of the European Championships.  

"We wish Chris the very best of luck for the future as he returns to club management, a desire for which he has always been honest and open about."

Coleman's contract with the FAW was up at the end of the month and the former City boss has decided to go back into management with Championship side Sunderland who are without a win in 19 home matches going into tomorrow's home game with Millwall.

His appointment, according to a number of Wearside side based media is expected to be confirmed on Sunday.
