Defiant Rob Page determined to see out Wales contract | 'Beating Latvia would relieve pressure'
Under-fire Wales boss Rob Page says he is determined to see out the remaining three years of his contract.
Page signed a four-year deal exactly 12 months ago as Wales prepared to make their first appearance at a World Cup for 64 years. But their fortunes have plummeted since and Page faces a potentially make-or-break Euro 2024 qualifier in Latvia on Monday.
Wales must beat bottom side Latvia - who are yet to register a point in Group D - to keep alive hopes of a top-two place and automatic qualification for next summer's finals in Germany.
Asked at his pre-match press conference whether he was under pressure from the Football Association of Wales executive to qualify, Page said: "I can't let that affect me. I can't think about that. I've got a job to do. I want to qualify for me, as a Welsh supporter myself.
"As the manager, I want to be in this job for the rest of my contract. I really enjoy working with this group of players."
Pressed further on whether he was fighting for his job, Page replied: "We are in an industry where you need to win games of football.
