Verheijen quits coaching team
Saturday 25 February 2012
Raymond Verheijen's often controversial spell with the Wales national side has come to an end after the Football Association of Wales announced last night that he had resigned rather than work with new manager Chris Coleman.
The outspoken Dutchman, brought into the national set-up as assistant manager under the late Gary Speed, had been due to be part of the managerial team for next week's friendly against Costa Rica, a game being held in Speed's honour. Verheijen tweeted: "Have [had] enough of their [FAW] political & destructive games. Very sad day."
