Belgian football player, Romelu Lukaku has stated that he strongly believes Thierry Henry will be the next coach of the Belgian national team.

Henry has been assistant to Roberto Martinez who stepped down as coach after the nation’s early exit from the 2022 World Cup.

Lukaku said, “In my eyes, Henry must be the next coach of Belgium. There is no doubt.

“I say it openly: He will be the next coach of the country.

“He has the respect of all players and he has won everything. He knows how to be a coach and he knows how to move. He knows the team, the league and the staff. In my eyes, he is the ideal coach for our national team.

“That said, I don’t know who they choose, but I don’t think Belgium should start all over again. So far, this generation has won nothing, but we must keep trying.

“He wants to win and I don’t think the union will find a coach who will change everything and start from scratch. It’s not worth it. “

Henry who is an Arsenal and Premier League legend joined Martinez’s coaching set-up when he arrived in 2016. He also served as a head coach with Monaco and Montreal Impact between 2018 and 2021.
