News, Wales U21s boss Paul Bodin is sacked after Euros qualifying flop which saw the Dragons finish fourth in their group: detailed suggestions and opinions about Wales U21s boss Paul Bodin is sacked after Euros qualifying flop which saw the Dragons finish fourth in their group.
PAUL BODIN has been axed as Wales Under-21 manager.
The ex-Swindon left-back saw his side finish fourth in their Euro qualifying campaign last month, 15 points behind group winners the Netherlands.
Bodin had been in charge since August 2019 when Robert Page left his role to help the senior squad.
The 57-year-old, who was previously Under-17s chief, signed a four-year deal then but Football Association of Wales chief executive Noel Mooney is now on the lookout for a new boss.
Bodin’s departure will be a blow for Page, who has yet to agree a new contract with the FAW beyond the World Cup.
SunSport revealed last Sunday that Wales’ talent identity manager Gus Williams is also on the brink of joining Blackburn as head of recruitment.
A problem for Bodin and Wales is their best players bypass the U21s and move straight into the seniors.
