thumbnail Hello,

The former Fulham boss has confessed that in spite of a draw in Brussels on Tuesday, he is still considering whether he is the right man for the national team job

Wales boss Chris Coleman admits that his future remains uncertain despite a 1-1 draw in Belgium in their final World Cup qualifier.

The former Fulham manager watched his side snatch a last-gasp draw in Brussels as Aaron Ramsey's goal two minutes from time cancelled out Kevin De Bruyne's 64th-minute strike.

The result gave Wales some solace from a campaign that saw their hopes of reaching the finals in Brazil next year extinguished some time previously and, with a new deal with the Welsh FA still to be agreed, Coleman is considering whether or not he is the right man for the job.

When questioned by reporters about his future after the game, he replied: "I said before the game that my contract finished at the end of November and I'm always looking long-term and the bigger picture but I won't change what I've said.

"I'm going to be there for the Finland game [a friendly in November] and then after that I'll look at everything and I will decide if I am the man going forward or not.

"Maybe someone else will decide that before I do but we'll enjoy [this result] and these last 10 days."

Coleman was also quick to stress that his tenure should not be decided on the back of the last two games, where they have picked up four points from a possible six.

"I want people to be realistic, to look at the whole campaign and the problems we face," he added to Sky Sports. "I don't want to be involved in something that's fickle and short-term, I want to be involved in something that's long-term.

"If I was going to say goodbye to it, I would have to make 100 per cent sure that it was the right decision for me. I want Wales to succeed and, if I don't think I can do that, then I will be more than happy to step aside."
