Nafeza 2 world - Roberts, who served as an assistant to former Wales bosses Gary Speed, Chris Coleman and Ryan Giggs, added: "I wish the Welsh national team every success as it embarks on another exciting chapter, of which I have the most wonderful memories.

"To the Red Wall and all the Welsh fans with whom I have gone through so much, the tears and the joy, I would like to thank you genuinely for the support I have always had from you and especially in recent weeks. Diolch."

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry and ex-Wales striker Craig Bellamy are among the names currently being considered to replace Page.

Current France Under-21s boss Henry, a graduate of the FAW's coach education course, would be unavailable until the end of the Olympics in August.

Bellamy was interviewed for the role following Coleman's departure, although the FAW opted to appoint Giggs in January 2018.

The current search, being led by the FAW's technical director Dave Adams, could go on through the summer as Wales prepare to find the right candidate before their Nations League campaign begins against Turkey on 6 September.

The FAW declined to comment on Roberts' statement.
