Coleman succeeded the late Gary Speed as Wales manager in 2012, and took his side all the way to the semi-finals of Euro 2016, where they lost to eventual champions Portugal.

Wales finished in third place in Europe's Group D in World Cup qualifying.

Fans always have something to say, especially on twitter, and the news that Chris Coleman was to take charge of struggling Sunderland was no different.

However, the inability to reach next summer's World Cup, and the FAW's failure to meet his demands have seen him leave to resume his club management career. We and Wales as a nation will be eternally grateful for the job he has done over six years. "Kit Symons has also resigned from his position as National Team Coach and the FAW would like to put on record its gratitude for his commitment to the Wales National Team".

Robbie Stockdale, who was appointed caretaker manager after Simon Grayson's departure, remains in charge for Sunderland's clash with Millwall later, however Coleman should be in the dugout for Tuesday's trip to Aston Villa.

After drawing with Panama in a friendly last week, Coleman said he was hoping for a quick resolution on his future with Wales and, at that point, had expected to stay on.

They have been without a manager since sacking Simon Grayson last month after one win in their opening 16 league matches left them bottom of the standings.

Chris Coleman has emerged as the favourite to take charge at Sunderland but having built such a good reputation with Wales, is it too big a risk?
