Tottenham winger Gareth Bale backs Brian Flynn to become permanent Wales manager

Welsh star keen for caretaker to be appointed...
Tottenham star Gareth Bale has given his backing to Brian Flynn's attempts to become permanent Wales manager.

Flynn, 54, has been given the caretaker post for the Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland after John Toshack resigned last month. The ex-Wales youth boss is a popular choice among the playing staff to take the job full time, with the in-form Spurs winger the latest to add to the clamour.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, he said: "We have obviously worked with him through Under-21s and he has been a great manager then and so there is no reason why he can do that for the full squad.

"Training was a lot more lively and enthusiastic and we are looking forward to the future.

"I think Brian is a great manager, and he has got faith in us and we all understand that and we all want to repay him and do the best we can do."
