Pulis offers to take charge of Wales… for one game only as Speed tribute
Stoke boss Tony Pulis has admitted he would happily take over as Wales manager – but only for one game.
The Welshman would be willing to send out the national side against Costa Rica on Wednesday, February 29 in a memorial game for Gary Speed.
Honour: Tony Pulis would be happy to take charge of Wales for a Gary Speed tribute match
Loved: Speed was loved by fans of many clubs
However, while the Wales job is
something he might consider later in his career, Pulis confirmed his
immediate future lies at the Britannia Stadium.
He told the Stoke Sentinel: 'Anything that would help in any shape or form in respect of Gary Speed, I would gladly do.
'I would have to speak to [Stoke chairman] Peter [Coates] first, of course, and if he didn't think it was right then fine.
'But if he was okay and they asked me for just a one-off game, then I'd do it out of respect for Gary.
'My main job remains at Stoke, but as I've said before, your national job is something you might look at in the future.'
Gary Speed's death shocked the football world in 2011, with praise and tributes for the manager flooding in from around the country.
