Christopher "Chris" Coleman (born 10 June 1970 in Swansea, Glamorgan) is a Welsh football manager and former player.

As a child he grew up a keen supporter of Liverpool FC - his favourite player being compatriot Emlyn Hughes

As a player, he usually played in defence, while also occasionally appearing as a forward. He won 32 caps playing for Wales. As a manager, Coleman attained a respectable ninth place finish in the Premier League in 2004 as the manager of Fulham, who had been tipped for relegation. After leaving Fulham, Coleman was appointed manager of Real Sociedad, but resigned in January 2008, citing differences with the incoming president. In February 2008, he returned to England to manage Coventry City, but he was sacked in May 2010 following a disastrous run of results.
