Thierry Henry returns for 2nd spell at Belgium’s bench

Brussels, Jun 9 (EFE).- Former France international Thierry Henry on Wednesday rejoined Belgium national team as an assistant to coach Roberto Martinez.

The Arsenal legend held the same post between 2016 and 2018 under the Spanish coach, who led the Red Devils to win their unprecedented bronze medal in the FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia before Henry left for two short spells as manager at Ligue 1 side Monaco and MLS Canadian side Montreal Impact.

Henry returned to Belgium just days before the start of the UEFA Euro 2020, a tournament which FIFA‘s highest-ranking national team is widely tipped to be among the favorites to win.

The current Belgian team comprises a blend of some of the world’s top players, such as Real Madrid’s Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard, Serie A winner Romelu Lukaku of Inter Milan, and UEFA Champions League finalist Kevin de Bruyne of Manchester City.

The 43-year-old Frenchman is going to travel with Belgium to Saint Petersburg on Friday, where they will start their European campaign against Russia in Group B, which also includes Denmark and Finland. EFE
