Stoke manager Tony Pulis has urged the whole of Wales to give Chris Coleman the support that was afforded to Gary Speed.

Coleman is set to take over as Wales boss, less than two months after Speed's death at the age of 42. After winning 32 caps for Wales, and after managing Fulham, Real Sociedad and Coventry in the past, Coleman would certainly bring plenty of experience to the role.

The only question for fellow Welshman and Stoke manager Pulis is whether Coleman will be afforded the time needed given the situation is still raw following Speed's death. "In going for Chris, brilliant, now everybody get behind him," said Pulis.
