(GSM) – Wales manager John Toshack has quit as Wales manager following a six-year reign in the position.
The 61-year-old was expected to quit after his position came under considerable threat following Wales’ defeat at the hands of Montenegro in their opening Euro 2012 qualifier last Friday.
Toshack declared his decision to resign with immediate effect from the post he has held since 2004 at a press conference
Wales’ opening defeat has put too much pressure on the team to run-out victorious when they face Bulgaria in what will be a crucial clash for both sides.
Bulgaria have been thrashed 4-0 by England, but Toshack said his now-former side do not have much of a chance to qualify if they do not beat Bulgaria.
These comments started a wave of skepticism, led by former Wales’ midfielder and current Derby County captain Robbie Savage, which has driven the manager off his managerial seat.
Meanwhile Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs confirmed he would love to coach his national team in the future but the legendary winger is unlikely to become Toshack’s successor as he is still committed to his playing career at Old Trafford.
