Wales have parted ways with assistant manager Kit Symons after their disappointing 2022 World Cup campaign.
The 51-year-old, who has won 36 caps for Wales, has joined Robert Page’s behind-the-scenes staff ahead of the Euro 2020 campaign.
After qualifying for a first World Cup in 64 years, performances in Qatar saw Wales pick up just one point as they were knocked out in the group stage.
“I want to thank Kit for his hard work and contribution to the national team,” Wales coach Page said.
“As we seek to reach more major tournaments, change is always important to continue this development in the team.
“I would like to wish Kit the best for the future.”
Symons was in his third stint as a Wales assistant, following two different spells under former manager Chris Coleman – with whom he still works at Greek side Atromitos.
His first stint oversaw the majority of the qualifying campaign which ended Wales’ 58-year wait to play a major tournament as they reached Euro 2016.
Symons then spent a year as Fulham manager before joining Wales in August 2016 only to return following Coleman’s resignation in November 2017.
In May 2021, Symons joined Page’s backroom team for the delayed Euro 2020 campaign in which Wales exited the group stage ahead of a heavy loss to Denmark in the last 16.
Wales then reached back-to-back majors with a first World Cup in 64 years, as Wales beat Austria and Ukraine in the play-offs to secure a place in Qatar.
But despite Gareth Bale’s penalty earning Wales a draw in their opener against the United States of America, sobering defeats against Iran and England followed. that Page’s team crashed out with a single point.
The Wales boss is said to have the “full confidence” of the Football Association of Wales after the campaign, having signed a new four-year contract two months prior.
Page said after the tournament he was “a bit disappointed” but hoped to use him in their upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers.
Wales start their Euro 2024 qualification against World Cup semi-finalists Croatia on March 25.
Wales and Croatia are joined in Group D by Turkey, Latvia and Armenia.
