Last updated : 03 July 2012 By Covsupport News Service

Former Coventry City forward John Hartson has said that he will be joining the backroom of the Welsh national team and teaming up with Chris Coleman.

Writing in his column in the Scottish Sun, Hartson wrote: "Chris simply asked me: 'Would you like to come and work for me?' I immediately accepted, shook his hand and promised him I'd do anything possible to help make the Wales national team successful.

"Everyone knows how much of a patriot I am. I speak our native language.

"So as a proud Swansea boy - just like Chris incidentally - to now be involved with the team is immensely satisfying.

"To be assisting Chris to effectively answer a call from my country is a fantastic privilege and honour for me.

"It's also why I'll be giving up my media duties to ensure I perform to the best of my ability."
