Coleman not considering vacant Palace post

Cape Town - Wales manager Chris Coleman has insisted that he is not thinking about taking over the vacant post at his former club Crystal Palace.

The Eagles are without a manager since the abrupt resignation of Sam Allardyce this week, which has led to speculation linking Coleman with the job.

However, Coleman remains focused on his Wales duties as he prepares them for a World Cup qualifier against Serbia next month.

The 46-year-old was a Palace player between 1991 and 1995 and previously mentioned that he would like to one day return to club management.

"I'm happy to talk about the Palace. I'd love to go back to the Palace but I'm not sure Prince Charles is ready for me just yet," he replied jokingly when asked about the Palace job by the press, according to Sky Sports.

"I had a good time at the Palace but I'm only thinking about Serbia. That's all I'm thinking about, that's all I care about. All I care about now is Wales.

"I don't think about after Serbia, I can't afford to think past one game. Lots of things have been said off the back of comments I made at the start of the campaign when I signed a new contract.

"But honestly, I cannot go into a game of football thinking: 'If we lose…' I've never thought like that. It's about making sure our boys perform like they have been. We're not far off."
