Tony Pulis offers to manager Wales for memorial match
Wednesday 11 January 2012
Stoke boss Tony Pulis has admitted he would happily take over as Wales manager - but only for one game.
The Welshman would be willing to send out the national side against Costa Rica on Wednesday, February 29 in a memorial game for Gary Speed.
However, while the Wales job is something he might consider later in his career, Pulis confirmed his immediate future lies at the Britannia Stadium.
He told the Stoke Sentinel: "Anything that would help in any shape or form in respect of Gary Speed, I would gladly do.
"I would have to speak to [Stoke chairman] Peter [Coates] first, of course, and if he didn't think it was right then fine.
"But if he was okay and they asked me for just a one-off game, then I'd do it out of respect for Gary.
"My main job remains at Stoke, but as I've said before, your national job is something you might look at in the future."
