Toshack future as Wales coach in doubt

There are reports that John Toshack has offered to quit his Wales job.

There was no official word from the Football Association of Wales to validate the rumours, but the 61-year-old's position has been under increased scrutiny since Friday's Euro 2012 qualifying loss in Montenegro.

That result, even just one game into the qualifying campaign, has placed huge emphasis on next month's home clash with Bulgaria.

Toshack even admitted his side might not "have too much chance" of qualifying for the tournament if they do not beat a side thrashed 4-0 by England.

Those comments contrasted with Toshack's prior to the game, in which he spoke glowingly of his maturing group of young players.

Toshack has overseen a huge transition in almost six years at the Welsh helm, with a number of senior players being replaced by promising youngsters.

There was a feeling his youthful team was ready to come of age but Friday's loss in Podgorica has turned up the heat on the former Real Madrid boss.
