Ex-Arsenal striker Hartson steps down from Wales role

Former Arsenal and West Ham United striker John Hartson has stepped down from Wales' coaching panel.

He has cited increasing commitments as a pundit and family reasons as being behind his decision to leave Chris Coleman's backroom team.

"I have enjoyed every moment of my time with Wales. Everyone knows how passionate I am about my country," said Hartson.

"The work I now do as a pundit for the BBC is taking up more and more of my time.

"With another child on the way I need to spend some time with my growing family. I have learnt a lot working with Chris, Kit (Symons) and Osian (Roberts)."
