John Toshack departs after six years as Wales manager - who are the likely candidates to succeed him?
Ryan Giggs was a bookies' favourite and also thought to be the choice of Toshack, but the Manchester United star has been ruled out by his Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson
Successful Wales Under-21 boss Brian Flynn has groomed many of the young stars of Toshack's senior side. Has been seen by many as a side-kick for someone like Giggs - but would he want such a role?
Chris Coleman has wide experience after his time with Fulham, Real Sociedad and Coventry. He is a favourite of Toshack's and is available after his release by the Sky Blues
Dean Saunders (left) has been a key member of Toshack's back-room team, but has not impressed in his first managerial role with Wrexham
John Hartson (right) became the first man to publicly declare an interest in succeeding Toshack. The former striker would command the respect of all, but a lack of managerial experience could tell against him
Wales' most-capped outfield player Gary Speed is keen to build a managerial career, but the former national captain has just taken the Sheffield United job and has ruled himself out of the Wales running
Wales' all-time leading scorer Ian Rush is a legend to the fans and would have the respect of all, but his managerial record to date has been poor
Newport-man Tony Pulis would undoubtedly make the most of Wales' limited resources - but he is staying put with Premier League Stoke
Out of work since his Aston Villa exit, securing Martin O'Neill's services would be a huge coup for Wales - but would he be interested?
Mark Hughes was hugely popular with the players before his 2004 departure from the Wales job. The Fulham manager seems highly unlikely to return to his old role, though
Mark Bowen has been Mark Hughes' sidekick throughout his managerial career, including his time with Wales - would he be interested in taking a position as a number one?
Frenchman Phillipe Troussier has managed Japan, Morocco and Nigeria and impressed the FAW when he was interviewed in 2004 for the job that went to Toshack
Toshack's harshest critic, Robbie Savage has not endeared himself to some FAW officials - and is a 100/1 outsider with the bookies for the Wales job
What are these?
