Toshack calls on Evans for Wales

Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans has been appointed as an assistant to new Wales manager John Toshack.

Toshack will also have his former number two at Real Sociedad Salva Iriarte in his coaching team.

Evans managed Liverpool for four years, winning the League Cup in 1995. He resigned in 1998 after an unhappy time as co-manager with Gerard Houllier.

Iriarte is a highly respected coach in Spain, and has worked under Toshack in three separate spells at Sociedad.

Evans has been out of the game since he quit as Swindon Town's director of football in December 2001.

He will have fond memories of playing with and then coaching Toshack during Liverpool's glory years during the '70s.

After making only 11 first team appearances, Evans became the youngest member of the famous Anfield boot room following the shock resignation of Bill Shankly in 1974.

He then worked his way through the ranks as reserve team coach, senior coach and then assistant manager in 1993, before becoming manager in his own right when Graeme Souness resigned in January 1994.
