Chris Coleman quotes

Oct 06 2017

All we can do is work hard and take care of our business.feedback

Oct 05 2017

No, I wouldn't. These young players are talented. There is a lot of work still to do for them but they have shown their potential and, more importantly, they have shown their mentality since they have been with us. If I had to start with any of them, I am fully confident in all of them. David Brooks is here on merit, as are Ethan [Ampadu] and Ben. I would imagine in these next few games they will be playing a part, and a big part. I have got absolutely no worries or doubts about these players.feedback

Oct 05 2017

We know his capabilities at any given moment in changing the outlook of a game. He can create something or score from nothing. He won't be thinking this is his 50th cap and getting carried away with that. If he is anywhere near his best we have always got a chance of a positive result. We are used to missing a Bale or Ramsey. The quality we have got in the squad is good enough to play against any team, to compete and get results. If you take someone of his quality out of the team, you are going to be disappointed, of course. But we have enough.feedback

Oct 05 2017

They have got nothing to lose. They are a good team and they could have beaten us in Cardiff. We were disappointed with a point but we could have come away with nothing.feedback

Oct 05 2017

We have always had a game plan and it is not going to change without him. We have got enough quality. If you look at our bench, they are young but they are talented and probably as strong a bench as we have had in a long time. We are in a very good position.feedback

Oct 05 2017

We are used to missing a Bale or Ramsey. The quality we have got in the squad is good enough to play against any team, to compete and get results. If you take someone of his quality out of the team, you are going to be disappointed, of course. But we have enough.feedback

Oct 05 2017

There is a bit of damage in his calf which could keep him out a week, two weeks, three weeks, we don't know.feedback

Oct 05 2017

If you are on a yellow and need to take another, so be it. We just have to go and get a performance and a result. We can't go into it thinking about the consequences for other games afterwards. If there's ever a sign of that from us, we never produce a performance.feedback

Oct 05 2017

Any manager will tell you that you try to stay away from all that. I welcome it. It's great because I'm always used to 'there's nothing on it' [fixtures]. We get a couple of good results at the end of the campaign and everybody gets excited and the next campaign 'Wallop' … after three games we're out of it. That's not the case now. It's the second campaign, we've kept the ball rolling and we're in with a shout. The next game it's all or nothing and that's what we've always wanted.feedback

Oct 05 2017

They're not afraid of anybody. They'll take it to anybody. If we have any thoughts of hanging on, then we'll lose the game. We have to go on the front foot. There'll be times when we have to defend in numbers – it's international football. But when the opportunity presents itself, we have to go for it.feedback

Oct 05 2017

Of all the games in this campaign the one we could have lost was home to Georgia. They're a very good team. They've got imagination, they create chances and they play risk football. That's very difficult to play against, as we saw in Cardiff, and when the Republic played them.feedback

Oct 05 2017

It is on a knife-edge and we have all been there before. We are in with a great shout and the pressure and spotlight is welcomed by me, I promise you.feedback

Oct 05 2017

If he's anywhere near his best we've got a chance of having a positive result.feedback

Oct 04 2017

We have always been a little half a step behind, but we have injuries this campaign which we never had last campaign [for Euro 2016]. But you don't get there with ones and twos, it is about everybody.feedback

Oct 04 2017

This campaign we haven't always had Bale, Aaron Ramsey or Joe Allen. They are obviously three super-special players and we haven't always had them, but the lads who have come in have been absolutely magnificent.feedback

Oct 01 2017

I told him that when I took the captaincy off him because he's got that about him.feedback

Oct 01 2017

Mind you, he's in good company with Gareth Bale and Chris Gunter with his experience.feedback

Oct 01 2017

He's not had an easy ride at Arsenal, he's had a lot of criticism and it's the same with Gareth at [Real] Madrid.feedback

Oct 01 2017

Aaron has come out with his sleeves rolled up and thought 'I am going to show those who doubt me.' He keeps on doing that again and again.feedback

Sep 07 2017

Jurgen felt it was a bit early for Ben [playing for Wales] but we've all got opinions, which is what is great about football. I felt that if he was in the first team for Liverpool, and he is, he scored that great debut goal at the Kop end, then he was ready. We weren't going to start him in both games and play him for 90 minutes. It will be up to Jurgen and Ben on how far or close he is to the first team. What we've seen is that he is a very bright player and he's certainly shown enough with us again. Whatever is the next six or 12 months will be up to Jurgen and Ben himself.feedback

Sep 07 2017

We were going to be choosy with when we use him, but he's a good young talent that's for sure.feedback

Sep 07 2017

He's used to working with really good defenders every day at Liverpool. But there's nothing that prepares you for a 90 minutes out there, it's completely different.feedback

Sep 06 2017

Jurgen Klopp felt it was a bit early for Ben but we've all got opinions which is what is great about football.feedback

Sep 06 2017

These youngsters, even Ben Woodburn, have it all to do because I know how tough it is to stay at the top level in this industry.feedback

Sep 03 2017

I just told Ben to express himself in the last third and he knew all about his defensive duties.feedback

Sep 03 2017

It was a great game for him to make his debut in – they do not come tougher than that.feedback

Sep 02 2017

A draw doesn't do either of us any good so you would imagine something will have to give.feedback

Sep 01 2017

I don't regret saying this will be my last campaign. I wear my heart on my sleeve. Not everyone does that. I was honest and I do miss the day-to-day work.feedback

Sep 01 2017 - Russia

I can't think anything else other than we're going to Russia. I'm positive, I think we're in a good place. We need a big result and a big performance in this game. Forget the next three.feedback

Sep 01 2017

I've had other offers, but the thought of handing the job over and someone else standing there instead of me doesn't sit well. I'm all in, I'm still manager of Wales. I think we'll take it to the wire, I really believe that.feedback

Sep 01 2017

We can win the last four games, and that's no disrespect to Austria, Moldova, Georgia and the Republic of Ireland. I know this is a statement, but I'll say it – it could be Brazil, Spain and Germany. I have that much confidence in our players and our team. If we get it right then there's nobody we need to fear. A draw in this game won't do either of us any good, so you would imagine something will have to give. Both teams are going to go for it, but we've been here before and we know how to handle these situations.feedback

Sep 01 2017 - Russia

The trade-off I have is watching the boys singing the national anthem in Cardiff and I'm fronting that. To think going into this Austria game that someone could be stood there doing it instead of me leaves a real bad taste. The aim is Russia and that means we have to get Austria sorted out.feedback

Aug 30 2017

He's answered all the critics. He's matured in the last four or five years and come through it with flying colours.feedback

Aug 30 2017

He's always a story, he's one of the best players in the world. Things will be said and that's the way it is. He knows that.feedback

Aug 30 2017

This latest episode won't faze him at all. People wondered how he would handle it when he went to Real Madrid [in 2013] because you are like a film star there, but he absolutely cruised through it. He's answered all the critics. He's matured in the last four or five years and come through it with flying colours.feedback

Aug 30 2017

No-one else has ever gone to a foreign club from this country and done that. Absolutely nobody can doubt him.feedback

Aug 25 2017

Technically some of the teams there are absolutely tip top.feedback

Aug 25 2017

Where do you go from Real Madrid that's better? There's one or two clubs up there but none better.feedback

Aug 25 2017

Being selfish, he's better off at Real Madrid. You work all your life to get the top, you don't want to give that up.feedback

Aug 25 2017

I don't envisage there'll be a problem [for Wales] with Real Madrid, there never has been, they've always been brilliant with us.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Champions League

He was disappointed to miss the Serbia game but there was nothing we could do about that and of course he's won the Champions League again this year.feedback

Jun 25 2017

Racing at this high level you can never think you have it. He got me today.feedback

Jun 24 2017

Up until the lean it could have gone either way.feedback

Jun 23 2017

Yeah, I have complete confidence in myself that I can beat anybody I get on the line with, whether it's him (Usain Bolt) or anybody else.feedback

Jun 10 2017

We are four points behind with five games to play, but are we good enough to win three or four on the bounce? I don't have to tell you the answer to that. Whether it's Serbia away, it doesn't matter. I know we can get a result. We've gone to hard places before, we just need to do it again. Gareth's absence can't affect us. It's about us, the players who are available going in there and producing it.feedback

Jun 10 2017

There's another 12 points after that and if it's the second place that we're chasing, but it's doable, then I've got to absolutely go for that. I'm still optimistic. I'm optimistic of getting a result in Serbia.feedback

Jun 10 2017

In the last campaign we drew at home to Bosnia and it was like we'd won. This campaign when we've drawn it's been like a defeat because of what's happened between the Bosnia game and drawing in Austria. What happened in between was unprecedented, nobody thought we were going to get to those dizzy heights. You go to Austria and come back with a point and it's a disappointing result because we've qualified and been to a semi-final of a tournament.feedback

Jun 10 2017

I'm still optimistic of getting a result in Serbia. We are four points behind with five games to play. Are we good enough to win three or four on the bounce? I don't have to tell you the answer to that. Whether it's Serbia away, it doesn't matter. I know we can get a result because we've gone to hard places before and done it.feedback

Jun 10 2017

Everybody looks at us differently and it's been tougher – we've been striving for so long to be in this position where teams take us seriously and the expectation is higher. The expectation is higher for a reason – because we produced.feedback

Jun 10 2017

Hopefully we'll have that mental sharpness and focus so that if we're in the lead we can hang on to it and see it out, because that's what's been missing in this campaign. We've not seen the job through for 90 minutes. We've got to a certain level and then just lacked a bit of concentration. That's what we've got to get back.feedback

Jun 10 2017

I don't like talking past the next game, it's never served me right in the past. But I've had to mention it [now] because people think: 'If we don't get the right result or performance, what's my future?' But there's another 12 points after that and if it's second place that we're chasing, but it's doable, then I've got to absolutely go for that with everything that I've got. Why wouldn't I?feedback

Jun 10 2017

When the national anthem started, that's what I'll always remember. Two things stand out: the respect we showed Slovakia when their national anthem was played – it was silent from us, which was great; and then with our national anthem … the noise, wow, that was unbelievable. That's what I remember. Of course I remember the goals. But definitely, first tournament, first game, singing the national anthem – that was as good as it gets.feedback

Jun 10 2017

I can't say it has surprised me because I expected it unless we won every game in this campaign or we were top. It's human nature that if you get so far, you expect a bit more and want a bit more. But we can't look at anybody else. It's down to us.feedback

Jun 09 2017

This will come in Belgrade, I know it will before we kick a ball, and that's what we'll talk about with our players. You need to answer all the questions physically, mentally and tactically. It's international football, your country against their country. It's not war but it's what you stand up for and what they stand up for and bang, it comes together. Something's got to give and it's whoever's capable or not of mentally standing up to it.feedback

Jun 09 2017

It was only a recce but I had butterflies in my stomach: 'Here we go, I remember this place'. I can't say this is another game in the group because it's not for more than one reason. And one of the reasons is that [game in 2012]. I suffered there, we suffered there – and it was my fault. That will never leave me. Nor should it. It will be like that if I went back to Belgrade with my wife for the weekend.feedback

Jun 09 2017

But I can't wait for this game. I know it's going to be tough but I like meeting those challenges. With Balo in the team or not, I can't guarantee a win. And we're desperate for a win. But what we must do is perform. We have to stand up to them and not go away with our tails between our legs having missed the game, because that's unacceptable. I won't accept that, but I don't expect it from these players. For some time now they've stepped up to the mark.feedback

Jun 09 2017

You go to these places and it's almost like there's a stage in the game where there's a power play. All of a sudden, from wherever it comes, the crowd start getting really rowdy, the opposition up the tempo for five or 10 minutes and they bombard you. You stand up to it or you duck it. There's no third option.feedback

Mar 28 2017

It was a typically British derby game, there was needle all the way through the game. I'm not complaining about that. A couple of your boys were lucky to stay on the pitch; it was a little bit of both. Your boys did not come off with halos above their heads.feedback

Mar 27 2017

You take someone like Gareth Bale out of your team and you are going to miss that. We have got to find another way and we will. That will be our sixth game in this campaign and we have had Aaron Ramsey for [only] two of them. Joe Allen has missed a couple too. But at our best we know we can play against anybody and win.feedback

Mar 26 2017

It was a typical derby. Your boys are not coming off there with halos on their heads.feedback

Mar 25 2017

He's numb; he didn't say a word. I was the first one into the dressing room after the game and he was sitting on the floor with his head in his hands. But, no matter how badly he feels, or we feel, it's worse for Seamus. We've just got to hope and pray that it's not too bad for Seamus.feedback

Mar 24 2017

Me and [Ireland boss] Martin O'Neill both know full well that when that whistle blows and we lock horns, it doesn't matter what is said, who is a good player or who is not a good player.feedback

Mar 24 2017

I must be hell of a manager then - I'm happy with those comments because it makes me look good!feedback

Mar 24 2017

Neil Taylor is devastated. It's not going to make Séamus feel any better but Neil is not that type of player. I've not seen the challenge but I've seen the outcome. It's a bad one for Séamus and that's a shame. He's someone I respect, I think he's one of the best full-backs in the Premier League so I hope he's not out for too long.feedback

Mar 23 2017

When you think of where he plays, there is nothing that he won't be familiar with. What do I make of the comments? It doesn't bother me and it won't bother him. We have a few guys on cards but I won't say to anyone, be careful. We must not hold anything back.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - Russia

I do think about Russia. You want to be back in that tournament environment. I'm desperate to do it again. I can't describe to you how that felt.feedback

Mar 23 2017

It was a dry camp; we were together seven weeks; no alcohol for staff or players. But I had a double whiskey by myself. A sneaky one out on the balcony as I was absolutely gutted.feedback

Mar 23 2017

I'm 46. Let's say I work 20 more years. I will never do this job again. I'm quite sad about it. I've got to make the most of it while I've got the honour.feedback

Mar 21 2017

There was a tentative phone call that came my way but it was all about playing for Wales for me. My dad was Dublin born and bred – a Dublin boy – but he always pushed me to play for what was Wales Under-15s in my day. If you had shown a bit of talent then you would play for south Wales and you would play against north Wales. My mother's father is American so I had an opportunity there as well.feedback

Jul 05 2016 - Portugal

I don't think Gareth Bale really needs to tell us about Cristiano Ronaldo, I think we all know about Cristiano Ronaldo. We've been watching him long enough so, like I said earlier, the players will know what they're up against; not just about Ronaldo, they know all about the other Portugal players, they know all about Portugal. It won't be just about one player.feedback
