Wales have appointed former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs as their manager on a four-year contract.

The Football Association of Wales decided to put him in place after Chris Coleman quit in November to take charge of Sunderland.

Giggs won 64 caps as a player between 1991 and 2007, but was unpopular with some Wales fans for missing a lot of international games.

The 44-year-old said he was proud to have been handed the job and excited by the challenge ahead. Wales failed to qualify for this year's World Cup finals in Russia so they'll now be focusing on the 2020 European Championship.

Giggs' first game in charge will be in the China Cup tournament against the hosts in Nanning in March.
