Robert Page: Wales boss ‘low’ and facing uncertain future

Date:

Asked if these results could have a bearing on his future, Page added: “I’m the wrong person to be asking. Only the board, the chief executive, the president, the technical director – that’s a question for them.

“After camp, we have a conversation with Dave Adams [Football Association of Wales technical director] and Steve [Williams, FAW president] and Noel [Mooney, FAW chief executive]. Of course we’ll have those conversations.

“One way or the other, we will decide on what’s right for Wales and move forward.”

Senior figures at the FAW have yet to comment on Page’s position but said they “review each camp and reflect properly” as they do after any international window.

However, there was an air of resignation to Page as he conducted his post-match interviews in Trnava.

Although friendly matches would not usually determine a manager’s future, these results followed a 12-month period which included an embarrassing home defeat by Armenia and subsequent failure to qualify for Euro 2024 which prompted criticism for Page.

If he is to stay in post, Wales’ next game will be in the Nations League in September at home to Turkey, one of the teams who pipped them to Euros qualification.

“The form coming into it has been all right but when you draw against Gibraltar and you get beaten with the goals we have tonight, questions are going to be asked. I completely understand that,” said Page.

“I’m just focused on what I need to do. This camp served its purpose – to play a different formation – and we plan now for September.”
