Lars Lagerback managed Nigeria at World Cup 2010

Lars Lagerback is one of the contenders for the boss as manager of Wales.

The former Sweden and Nigeria manager has said he’s interested in taking the post and has already spoken to FA of Wales technical director Osian Roberts and chief executive Jonathan Ford.

Lagerback said: “On paper it’s an interesting job. You want to know about how they look upon the job and the organisation around the job.”

Lagerbeck spoke to Roberts and Ian Rush following a conference in Madrid in September and spoke to Ford earlier this week.

He joins Rush, caretaker boss Brian Flynn, Lawrie Sanchez, Chris Coleman and John Hartson as contenders for the post vacated by John Toshack in September.

Lagerback managed Sweden from 2000 until 2009.

When Sweden failed to qualify for the 2010 World Cup Finals Lagerback stepped down before signing a short-term deal to take charge of the Nigerian side in South Africa.

He was reportedly offered an extension with Nigeria despite suffering elimination in the group stages but opted not to stay on.
