"We are delighted that he and Kit Symons, his assistant manager, have joined us, and are now focused on working together to get the football club moving in the right direction."Coleman led Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 in their first major tournament since 1958.

"The club worked incredibly hard to make sure we were a good fit and to show me the potential that can be achieved here," Coleman said."I believe that every person at this football club, every player and every supporter has a part to play in getting us back to where we belong."
Sunderland, relegated from the Premier League last season, are currently bottom of the second-tier standings with just one win in 17 matches.Coleman's first game will be Tuesday's trip to fifth-placed Aston Villa in the Championship.

I think we were prepared for their schemes, and that's why I http://www.officialastrosshop.com/authentic-20-preston-tucker-jersey.html think we got good shots early. We just didn't hit 'em," he http://www.giantsshopfootball.com/Authentic-Olivier-Vernon-Jersey added."And when your defense isn't doing its job on the other end of the floor, that probably gets into your head a little Jonathan Huberdeau Youth jersey bit http://www.nfllionsofficialonline.com/Tj-Jones-Jersey too on the offensive end. We just have to play a lot better, and play much closer to what we're capable of."
Wales manager Chris Coleman has eased concerns over the fitness of Aaron Ramsey ahead of Arsenal's Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday after the midfielder Shaq Thompson Jersey withdrew from the national squad for their friendly against Panama.
The 26-year-old, who played the full 90 minutes of Wales' 2-0 defeat by France on Friday, was always scheduled to withdraw from Tuesday's game, Coleman said."Coming into the camp we knew we were only going to have him for France," Coleman told reporters on Monday. "No matter how he felt afterwards we decided it would be Brandon Marshall Jersey one game for Aaron Ramsey.
"I think coming into the camp because of what's been happening with him at Arsenal in terms of his fitness we thought one game would be better than two."That was the thinking, he's gone back to Arsenal. He will be available for them at the weekend."
