West Brom boss Tony Pulis dismisses talk of taking Wales job from Chris Coleman

WEST Brom boss Tony Pulis has dismissed speculation linking him with the Wales job.

The Newport-born 59-year-old has been installed as one of the favourites for the role with current manager Chris Coleman assessing his future.

Wales failed to qualify for next year’s World Cup, with Monday’s 1-0 home defeat to the Republic of Ireland ending their hopes of reaching the play-offs.

Coleman has said he is considering his position after previously saying it would be his final campaign, but Pulis claims he has no interest in taking over.

‘I’m quite happy where I am and I think it’s wrong we’re even talking about someone who’s still in a job.

‘Chris has done a fantastic job there and he’ll be very disappointed at the moment, as the nation is.

‘Time is a great healer, we’ll see what Chris does in the next couple of months.’

Pulis’ Baggies are tenth in the Premier League going into this weekend’s fixtures and do not play until Monday, when they travel to Leicester.
