Euro2016: Wales team operates like a club side - Man Utd hero Giggs

Wales great Ryan Giggs has claimed that the current Welsh national team bonds like a close club side does.

The Manchester United legend believes that credit for the change in culture and fortunes of the Dragons goes to Wales coach Chris Coleman.

Ahead of the Euro2016 quarter-final against Belgium on Friday night, Giggs heaped praise on Coleman's Welsh outfit.

"The biggest compliment I can give this Wales side is that they are like a club side," said Giggs in his role as ITV pundit.

"That all comes down to one person - Chris Coleman. What he's done and what he's achieved is unbelievable.

"From the tragedy with Gary Speed and his first four or five games when he was under pressure, and I know he felt the pressure, to turn it around to where they are now, is unbelievable.

"They have the team spirit that any successful team needs and with Gareth Bale in your side you've always got a chance."
