Hartson interested in coaching Wales

Former Wales striker John Hartson has expressed his interest in taking charge of the national team should current coach John Toshack resign.

It has been widely reported that Toshack is ready to throw in the towel after six years at the Wales helm, and Hartson admits he would happily succeed the 61-year-old.

Hartson, 35, recently came through a battle with cancer but says he is ready to return to football in a coaching capacity, despite having no previous experience.

"[I'd] Absolutely [be interested]," Hartson told talkSPORT. "There's nobody that will be more committed and more Welsh than I am. If it was offered to me then obviously I would seriously, seriously think about it.

"There maybe one or two candidates out there that come before me, I may have to wait my turn, maybe three or four years down the line.

"But if you're asking me if I would take the job, absolutely. You'd have to be a fool to turn down the national manager's job.

"The only way you get experience in management is by going into a job, of course I'd be a candidate for the job, but it depends on how seriously they take me.''
