Wales Sack Manager Robert Page

Following a string of disappointing outcomes, Robert Page was fired as Wales’ manager, the Football Association of Wales (FAW) disclosure this on Friday.

Page led Wales to the second round of the 2020 Euros and their fi rst World Cup in sixty-four years in 2022, but they were unable to qualify for the current Euros after losing to Poland in a play-off penalty shootout.

Page did receive a vote of confidence following that heartbreaking outcome, FAW president Steve Williams declaring he would be in charge of the 2026 World Cup qualifying campaign.

However, he subsequently oversaw one of the most embarrassing results in the country’s history, a 0-0 draw with Gibraltar in a friendly.

The FAW did not reach their decision easily, taking over a week to discuss the 49-year-old’s future.

The former Welsh international defender leaves, though, with glowing tributes being paid to him by his former bosses.

“On behalf of myself and the entire FAW, I extend our heartfelt gratitude to Rob for his commitment and dedication to his roles for the national teams,” said FAW chief executive Noel Mooney.

“Under Rob Page’s leadership, our Cymru (Wales) men’s team has achieved significant milestones and victories which have created many incredible memories for our nation, most notably our first World Cup in 64 years.”
