Spain calls for Coleman

27 June 2007 11:44
Former Fulham boss Chris Coleman has been linked with the vacant managerial position at Spanish side Real Sociedad. Coleman has been out of a job since being axed by the Cottagers in April and has emerged as a leading candidate to take charge of Sociedad, who have just been relegated from the Primera Liga. The Welshman had earlier told The Sun: "We see a lot of foreign coaches coming here, but not many British guys going abroad. "Coaching abroad would improve me as a boss. You see a different side of football, a different culture." Coleman is seen as the leading candidate to succeed Miguel Angel Lotina, who resigned after Sociedad were relegated to the second division for the first time in 40 years. Meanwhile, Coleman's former club are reported to be closing in on a deal for West Bromwich Albion striker Diomansy Kamara, who is expected to leave the Championship club this summer. Fulham are also thought to be one of the clubs on the trail of Marlon Harewood, who has been told he can leave West Ham United.
