Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has said that he hopes Chris Coleman will decide to stay on as Wales Manager.

Coleman has met senior players and has been urged to stay on as Wales boss despite the failure to qualify for next year's World Cup finals in Russia.

Coleman had said after Wales had reached the semi-finals of Euro 2016 that the 2018 World Cup campaign would be his last in charge.

Warnock was speaking at today's Cardiff City press conference, before the team travel to Birmingham for tomorrow's game.

Cardiff City are currently top of the championship table.

Warnock said that it is Coleman's 'own personal decision' if he should continue to manage Wales.

He added that leaving Wales and managing another team might be more financially rewarding, but he also said that if he Coleman has the trust of the team, remaining Wales manager 'would be good for the area'.
