Rob Page feels 'low' as pressure mounts on Wales manager

Rob Page felt "low" after being jeered by Wales fans again after the 4-0 friendly loss to Slovakia.

The pressure has ramped up on the under-fire manager after two dismal results during this international window and acknowledged that his future as coach is uncertain.

Page told BBC Sport Wales after Sunday's (09.06.24) game: "They [fans] want me out. I completely understand. I’ve got to stay true to myself and focused on the job in hand. Everything else is out of my control.

"I clapped them with the players and when the players walked, I made a point of going over to the supporters and saying ‘It’s on me’. I get the frustration.

"[I feel] low, disappointed, of course. I’m human at the end of the day and nobody wants to fail."

Page will hold talks with the Welsh FA about his future and explained that the two parties will decide "what's right" for the national team.

He said: "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.

"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."
