David Edwards believes everyone in Wales' squad is behind Brian Flynn winning the head coaching job on a permanent basis.
The country's Under 21 boss has been promoted to the senior team on a caretaker basis for two matches following John Toshack's exit.
Flynn's first game in charge ended with defeat following a 1-0 home loss to Bulgaria at the Cardiff City Stadium.
Wales next take on Switzerland on Tuesday and Edwards is disappointed the squad could not give Flynn a winning start.
The Wolves midfielder insists everyone wants Flynn to land the post on a full-time basis as he is the right man for the job.
"We were absolutely gutted with the way things panned out against Bulgaria," he told the Western Mail.
"All the boys were so desperate for things to go well with Brian coming in as manager.
"We all want to see him become the permanent boss and they wanted to do well for him. We were left so disappointed that we didn't.
"With the enthusiasm he has and the way he backs us, a result like that left us feeling we did not do him justice. It was such a shame it did not pan out the way we wanted it to.
"Personally, I am one million per cent behind Brian Flynn and I believe he is the man for the job. He knows the players and gets the best out of us.
"He is such a bubbly and lively character in training and around the place too.
"The pride he has for Welsh football is incredible and I believe you need a man like that in charge of the national team.
"I'm desperate for him to get the job and that's the consensus with the other lads as well."
