Coleman out of Palace running

Coleman clearly knew being asked about the Eagles vacancy was coming as he named a 26-man training squad ahead of the crunch World Cup qualifier in Serbia on June 11.

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.

Wales manager Chris Coleman has declared his focus is exclusively on his team's upcoming World Cup qualifiers, and not speculation linking him to the vacant Crystal Palace job.

"We've had plenty of time to think knowing that he's not going to be there", said Coleman. I'm looking forward to this game with Serbia for more than one reason and I'm not thinking past that.

Wales manager Coleman said: "He doesn't want to play global football, which is a disappointment from our point of view".

The party will be trimmed to 23 before Wales head out to Serbia, and Coleman is determined to make up for the lowest point of his five-year reign - the 6-1 defeat to the same opponents in September 2012. I only care about preparing Wales properly, and it wouldn't look very good now if I did jump ship before we go to Serbia.

"I don't care about it".

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale and Aston Villa defender Neil Taylor are suspended for the game in Belgrade and have not been included in Coleman's squad. I tell you what can happen, we can go there and get a result.

Wales, who are in the same World Cup qualification group as Ireland, sit third in Group D, four points behind both Ireland and Serbia.

"I'm confident that people are prepared to step up on the night without Gareth.".

"I know it's a huge task for us, but I've still got the same excitement to do the job, the same belief in the players and the team".
