FAW: Statment - Raymond Verheijen

FAWFAW STATEMENT
The Football Association of Wales (FAW) wishes to announce that it has today received the resignation of Raymond Verheijen.

Raymond was the assistant manager to Gary Speed with the Wales national team.

The FAW accepts the resignation with regret, as Raymond was due to assist the Wales squad this week with the match against Costa Rica, a game being staged in honour of the Wales manager who tragically left us in November of last year.

In light of the forthcoming match, and the sensitivities of it, the FAW has no further comment to make at this time.

The FAW would like to take the opportunity to thank Raymond for his work over the last twelve months and wishes him well for the future.
