Wales boss Coleman signs new two-year deal

23 May 2016, 21:18

London - Wales manager Chris Coleman has signed a two-year contract extension, the Football Association of Wales announced Monday.

There had been uncertainty over the future of Coleman, who has guided Wales to next month's European Championships in France.

But he has now signed a new deal that will include the qualifying campaign for the 2018 World Cup.

"I'm delighted that we've come to an agreement so I have the honour of leading my country in another campaign, a World Cup campaign," said Coleman.

"We need to build on what we have achieved and I'm looking forward to the challenge.

"It is a big challenge, but one I think we can conquer. I'm honoured to be in charge of Wales for two more years."

Coleman succeeded the late Gary Speed, a fellow former Wales international, in January 2012.

By overseeing qualifying for Euro 2016, Coleman guided Wales to their first major tournament finals since the 1958 World Cup.
