Wales: Rob Page will hold talks over becoming their new permanent boss after Ryan Giggs resigns

EXCLUSIVE: Wales interim boss Rob Page will hold talks to become their new permanent manager after Ryan Giggs resigned, with Welsh FA to discuss terms that will see him through to Euro 2024

Robert Page will talk about a long-term contract with Wales in the coming weeks after Ryan Giggs resigned.

Giggs had temporarily left the role after he was accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend on Nov. 20 – allegations he strenuously denies – and then resigned on Monday, as Sportsmail exclusively revealed.

Page was interim manager and his current deal will run until the end of Wales’ World Cup campaign, but there is a willingness on all sides to discuss new terms to take Wales to Euro 2024.

The 47-year-old has done an excellent job since he took over the reins. Wales had qualified for Euro 2020 – held last summer – under Giggs, but Page led them to the last 16 and promoted to the top of the Nations League.

But Page’s greatest achievement was to lead Wales to their first World Cup since 1958, and only the second in their history, when they defeated Ukraine earlier this month in a play-off where the winner had to win it all in Cardiff.

With just two days left – against Belgium and Poland in the Nations League in September – before the final, Page is set to take Wales to Qatar with his future secured.

In April, exclusively to Sportsmail, Page said: ‘These Welsh players would walk on glass along the M4 to get here and play.

“Before the race in Austria recently, I spoke to them and said it felt like I was with a group of friends.

“No money, no politics. Like I’m kicking a ball with my mates. That is the feeling and it has brought us a long way.’
