Rob Page says he has cleared the air with Football Association of Wales chief Noel Mooney after their public spat final month.
Mooney put Page’s future within the highlight 4 days earlier than the Euro 2024 qualifier in opposition to Croatia by saying the supervisor’s place can be reviewed if Wales didn’t qualify for Euro 2024 mechanically.
Subsequent media experiences steered Mooney had wished fellow Irishman Roy Keane, the previous Sunderland and Ipswich supervisor and TV pundit, to exchange Page following June defeats to Armenia and Turkey.
Page is simply over 12 months right into a four-year contract and promised to “ignore the noise” in the course of the build-up to a sport that Wales finally received 2-1 to maneuver into the second computerized qualifying place in Group D.
Captain Ben Davies described Mooney’s feedback as “not helpful”, and Page stated the difficulty has since been addressed at a gathering between himself, the chief government and FAW president Steve Williams.
“It was a conversation all three of us needed,” Page stated when asserting his squad on Wednesday for this month’s last Euro 2024 qualifiers in opposition to Armenia and Turkey.
“I’m not going to go into details of what was said. It needed to be done and only positives will come from it.
“I’m due to meet him (Mooney) after the press conference and we’ll have a coffee and a chat.
“Things were said and that was it. We all move forward in the same direction. Full focus is now on the football.
“It was frustrating, unnecessary. But I don’t want to spend any more time thinking about it. We’re all on the same page.
“We all know what we’ve got to do. It would be disrespectful from me now to the players to keep going on about it.”
Tottenham ahead Brennan Johnson returns to a 23-man squad after lacking the win over Croatia with a hamstring harm.
Page maintains stand-in skipper Davies will probably be match for each qualifiers, regardless of the defender lacking Spurs’ 4-1 Premier League defeat in opposition to Chelsea on Monday and in addition being in peril of sitting out his membership’s weekend sport at Wolves.
Sunderland defender Niall Huggins has received his first senior call-up and Portsmouth midfielder Joe Morrell returns after a two-match suspension.
But Aaron Ramsey is once more dominated out with the knee harm he sustained in September, and Page says the Cardiff midfielder has suffered a “setback” in his restoration.
He stated: “It’s disappointing, I found out on Friday last week. As we all know Aaron was pushing and pushing to be part of this camp.
“Unfortunately it’s come a little too soon for him. He’s had a setback. He got up to about 90 per cent. If you’d seen him on the grass, straight lines, everything was fine.
“But there was something stopping him from going to that last step. So it’s not great for us, but it gives others an opportunity.
“He’ll be a part of it (the squad). I had that conversation with him last camp. He knew he wasn’t going to play any minutes in regards to the changing room, but to have Aaron around the lads is definitely beneficial.”
Wales can keep away from the play-offs in March by beating Armenia in Yerevan on November 18 and Turkey in Cardiff three days later.
Dropped factors in both sport will depart them counting on different outcomes to hitch already-qualified Turkey at subsequent summer season’s European Championship in Germany.
“June was a bump in the road,” Page stated of damaging defeats to Armenia and Turkey within the area of 4 days.
“We didn’t like it. We didn’t appreciate it. We didn’t like what we saw, but we put it right in September (by beating Latvia) – and some.
“We built on that in October and capped it off with arguably one of the best performances that I’ve seen.
“We have to build on that. It will count for nothing if we don’t follow it up.”
