Where is Chris Coleman now?

After a car crash prematurely ended his career at the age of 31, Chris Coleman moved into management with Fulham in 2003.



A fine first season resulted in Fulham finishing third but after selling a lot of their best players the team struggled and Coleman was sacked in 2007.

After brief spells with Real Sociedad and Coventry City, Coleman started a media career in television as a co-commentator for ITV.

In 2011, Chris Coleman was back in football management with Greek side Larissa but left after the club fell into financial difficulties.

In January 2012 Chris Coleman was named as successor to the late Gary Speed as the Welsh national team manager.

After missing out on qualification to the 2014 World Cup Finals in Brazil, Chris Coleman’s Wales team managed to qualify for Euro 2016, the first time they had qualified for a major tournament since 1958.

The team were a revelation in the tournament, topping their group (which included England), and beating Northern Ireland and a highly fancied Belgium team before losing in the semi-finals to Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal.

Due to his success with Wales, Hull City approached the the Football Association of Wales for permission to talk to Coleman about becoming their new manager but the approach was immediately rejected.
