Wales’ Joe Allen admits that the whole team are ‘hugely gutted’ to see Chris Coleman leave as manager.
But, Wales’ loss was Sunderland’s gain, as Coleman left to lift the struggling Championship side. Since his arrival, he has lead them to a win and two defeats in his first three games.
“We are all hugely gutted,” Allen said. “I think it is not often a manger leaves his post and every single person is sad to see him go.
“That is testament to the job he has done for us and the impact he has had on all of us. It has been a really successful phase that we will not forget.”
We all wish him the best of luck at Sunderland and I think if anyone can turn that club around and steer them in the right direction he’s the man to do that,” added Allen, 27, who has won 40 Wales caps.
It was a shock and a huge disappointment, he’s done an incredible job and had great success.”
