WALES cannot confirm who his manager will be at the World Cup until Ryan Giggs’ domestic violence trial is completed.
Caretaker coach Robert Page led the Dragons to a historic first final in 64 years thanks to Sunday’s 1-0 play-off triumph over Ukraine in Cardiff.
The win extended Page’s contract with the Football Association of Wales until the end of the World Cup, but the same goes for Giggs.
The finals in Qatar will take place from November 21st to December 18th.
SunSport understands the FAW, in its sensitive leadership position, is playing the waiting game with Giggs’ trial, due to start August 8 in Manchester.
The Manchester United legend, 48, denies all allegations.
Paul Scholes showed support for his former Old Trafford team-mate by posting an Instagram story of Giggs celebrating Wales qualifying for Euro 2020 with a World Cup and clapping emojis.
Page has stepped in as boss since Giggs was arrested in November 2020.
The former Watford and Wales defender has overseen 23 games – winning ten, drawing eight and losing just five.
Page, 47, has had three hits in the hot seat.

The Dragons have won promotion to the top tier of the Nations League, reached the last 16 of Euro 2020 and have now earned a first-place finish at a World Cup since 1958.
Page, who has won 41 caps, is very popular with the players.
That was highlighted at Sunday’s dressing room celebrations after the game, which was captured by midfielder Jonny Williams on social media.
Welsh star duo Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey sang a remix of dance hit “Freed from Desire” with new lyrics from “Pagey’s on fire, your defense is terrified!”.
