Mark Hughes can see parallels between himself and Ryan Giggs, who he has tipped to succeed Chris Coleman as Wales manager.

Coleman surprisingly decided against renewing his contract for another campaign, instead deciding to move back into club management with Championship strugglers Sunderland.

"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".

"Just want to say good luck for your future and a big thank you for the last few years #goodmemories".

Coleman is understood to have met with the Welsh FA earlier on Friday - a month after Wales missed out on qualification to next year's World Cup in Russian Federation - and informed them of his decision. Bale was absent as they lost to the Republic of Ireland in Cardiff to miss out on a play-off spot.

He was not in charge for the 2-2 draw against Millwall at home but has now been confirmed on a deal until 2020.

Chief executive Martin Bain told the club's official website: "The football club has conducted a thorough process over the last three weeks to identify the best manager for the job, before and after which Chris was the clear first choice".

"It's an honour to be appointed the manager of Sunderland AFC and I'm over the moon that the club believes I am the right man".

"We are delighted that he and Kit Symons, his assistant manager, have joined us, and are now focused on working together to get the football club moving in the right direction".
