Speaking at his official unveiling at Hensol Castle, he told a press conference broadcast on Sky Sports News HQ: "I'm tremendously proud and excited to be the next Wales manager and I can't wait to get going. It's a great opportunity and I'm excited.

"I played 64 times for my country. I'd like to think I'll be the same kind of manager as I was a player, with professionalism but also a little bit of fun along the way."

But Alan Shearer laughed at the news, saying: "It will be interesting to see how he gets his players to turn up for friendly fixtures because Giggs didn't play in one for Wales in nine seasons!"
