Therefore, caretaker boss Robert Page will be in charge at the Euros.
Who is Robert Page?
Page first took charge of Wales on a caretaker basis during their international break last November.
Manager Ryan Giggs was arrested on suspicion of assault and stepped away to leave Page in charge of Wales’ games.
Page has some managerial experience, having been at the helm at both Port Vale and Northampton Town.
The 46-year-old was also in charge of Wales’ Under-21 side for a period of time.

As a player, Page made 41 appearances for Wales, with the majority of his club career spent at Watford in the 1990s, where he made 215 apps.
Page then went on to play for Sheffield United, Cardiff and Coventry before closing out his career with Huddersfield and Chesterfield.
But now, Page will get the biggest assignment of his career as he takes on the Wales job for this summer’s 2020 European Championships.
Why will Ryan Giggs not be in charge?
Giggs was charged with coercive control and actual bodily harm in relation to his ex-girlfriend, while he was also charged with assault by beating relating to a second woman, back in April.
“We have authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Ryan Giggs with engaging in behaviour which was controlling or coercive and assault occasioning actual bodily harm,” the Crown Prosecution Service announced.
“A charge of assault by beating relating to a second woman has also been authorised. Mr Giggs will appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 28th April.”
As a result, the Welsh FA announced Page would be taking Giggs place as manager for the Euros.
