Nevertheless, it seems like a better job awaits him at the worldwide level, as the former Welsh global has gone through an interview with the Wales national team for a managerial position, as per Sky Sports.

The FAW is thought to be keen on appointing a Welshman following Coleman's successful five-year reign.

Giggs, who played for Wales 64 times, has made no secret of his desire to succeed Chris Coleman as national team coach, which he described past year as his ideal job.

But he would not be a popular appointment with some Wales fans, who questioned his commitment during his 16-year global playing career.

But he was widely criticised for regularly pulling out of Wales squads and did not make his first appearance in an worldwide friendly until March 2000.

Giggs is the first person to be formally spoken to, however, with the Daily Mail claiming that talks took place on Friday morning.

The 44-year-old is now working as a TV pundit after leaving his position as assistant to Louis van Gaal at United when the Dutchman departed Old Trafford at the end of the 2016 season.

Serena wants more majors
Although she will play no part at Melbourne Park over the next two weeks, Williams' sparkling record can not be ignored. She said that while she was pleased with her recovery and her progress, she was "not where I personally want to be".

So far Giggs has only four caretaker matches at Man Utd on his CV, and that was way back at the end of the 2013/14 season following the sacking of David Moyes.

Cardiff-born Bellamy, 38, won 78 caps and is the country's fourth most-capped player.

Another former pro being considered is ex-Newcastle and Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy.

Roberts was at Coleman's side as Wales reached the semi-final of Euro 2016 in France - the country's best performance at a major tournament.

Roberts, from Anglesey, knows the Welsh system inside-out as he has worked throughout all age grades.

Newport-born Tony Pulis was also among the initial contenders to succeed Coleman, but he ruled himself out of the running when he became Middlesbrough manager last month.
