Mark Hughes recommends Ryan Giggs for Wales job as Coleman departs

Craig Burley and Steve Nicol weigh the pros and cons of Chris Coleman leaving the Wales job to manage Sunderland.

Mark Hughes has backed Ryan Giggs to succeed Chris Coleman as the next manager of Wales.

Coleman left the role on Friday to take over at Championship strugglers Sunderland, and Giggs has now been installed as favourite for the post.

Stoke boss Hughes was given the chance to lead his country in 1999 and did the job for five years before taking over at Blackburn.

And the 54-year-old believes there are parallels between his own lack of managerial experience at the time of his appointment, and that of Manchester United legend Giggs.

Hughes told BBC Radio Five Live's "Sportsweek" programme: "I think he would be a candidate and a good choice -- I'd recommend him.

"I know from my experience of getting the Welsh job early in my career, they weren't ideal circumstances if I'm honest.

"But as a very young manager finding my way, all that was a learning experience for myself and I found it invaluable."

Giggs, who won 64 caps for Wales, took charge of Manchester United for four games in 2014 and also served as assistant to Louis van Gaal.

He is one of the favourites to replace Coleman along with Tony Pulis, looking increasingly vulnerable in his role at West Bromwich Albion.
