Coleman keen on Verheijen

Wales manager Chris Coleman is keen for Raymond Verheijen to be part of his backroom staff after holding talks with the outspoken Dutchman.
Verheijen tweeted earlier this week that his initial discussions with the former Coventry boss had been "positive" and although Coleman was keen to play down the significance of the meeting, he told BBC Sport Wales: "We're very much looking for that (Verheijen staying)."
He added: "But we've only had one meeting, so I spoke as much with Raymond as I did with (fellow assistant) Osian Roberts or anyone else - nothing special.
"People have made it into something that it's not, really. It was a productive meeting and we'll speak again. It was promising."
