Chris Coleman rules out Hull City switchby Jack Kitson / 24 August 2016, 12:10Tweet
Chris Coleman has put an end to speculation linking him with the Hull City Job after stating in his Wales news conference that he turned down an approach from the Premier League club, and that is the end of it.
Coleman was hotly linked with the Tigers following the surprise departure of Steve Bruce.
At one point the Welshman was the odds-on favourite for the post, but is now out at 8/1, with Hull widely expected to hand caretaker boss Mike Phelan the job following a stunning start in the dugout.
The former Man Utd assistant has won widespread praise for galvanising team spirit when it appeared to be at its lowest ebb after Bruce decided to quit.
The calm and composed 53-year-old has won over supporters, and got the players playing for him, which has resulted in a superb 100% start to the season following wins over Leicester and Swansea in the league, while the club booked their spot in the EFL Cup third round after beating Exeter City 3-1 on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, despite ruling out a switch to Hull, Wales manager Coleman has revealed that he is eager to work in Europe again at some point in the future, preferably at the top level.
