Wales manager Coleman distances himself from Crystal Palace job

Wales boss Chris Coleman says that he is not interested in being named as the next manager of Crystal Palace.

Liverpool hot prospects Ben Woodburn and Harry Wilson have been called up among a number of new faces to the Wales senior squad for the Portugal training camp.

The 46-year-old has said the 2018 qualifying campaign will be his last with Wales, but was more than happy to joke about his future.

Sam Allardyce's shock departure as Palace boss on Tuesday inevitably led to Coleman being linked once again with his former club.Wales manager Coleman made 190 appearances for the Eagles between 1991 and 1995 and has been linked with Palace in the past when the manager's job has become vacant. All I care about is Wales.

"All I'm thinking about is Serbia.

I had a good time there!" joked Coleman, referring to being awarded an OBE at Buckingham Palace last week.

I can't control what's said about me outside Wales. "I intend to be the manager of Wales for sometime to come yet and I am looking forward to the next challenge which is Serbia".

Wales now sit four points behind Serbia and Republic of Ireland, meaning they will need a result from their trip to Belgrade to preserve their qualification hopes.

Coleman, who has a year left on his contract with the Football Association of Wales, said he was only thinking about the match against Serbia.

"I've total belief in my players".

Gareth Bale and Neil Taylor are omitted due to being suspended for the clash, but Coleman has no injury worries as he takes the players through their paces prior to naming the squad that will take on Serbia.

"We went to Belgium once (in 2013) with no Gareth Bale, no Ashley Williams, no Joe Allen - and we got a result".
