Verheijen aims to succeed Speed

Wales assistant manager Raymond Verheijen hopes the leadership of the national side will be decided on Monday by the Football Association of Wales.

Wales were left without a manager following the death of Gary Speed last month, and Verheijen said a decision could be made on Monday.

The Dutchman said on Twitter: "Tomorrow FAW meet about future of Wales. Hopefully the board will respect Gary's wish so Osian Roberts and myself can lead the team to Brazil."

Verheijen added: "[There is] no need for new manager with new ideas. Our success was based on Gary's clear structure. Everybody knows what to do for mission Brazil 2014."

Verheijen, who has helped coach Holland, Russia and South Korea's national sides, was brought into the Wales set-up when Speed was appointed in 2010.

The 40-year-old helped Speed to organise and inspire Wales to win four of their last five internationals.
