The Belgian Football Association announced on Sunday that the famous French national football player Thierry Henry (43 years old) will return to the professional staff of the Belgian national team as one of the assistants of coach Robert Martinez in the European Cup.
In the 2016 European Cup in France and the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Henry was Martinez’s assistant, and Belgium finished third.
Subsequently, he began an independent coaching career. But subsequent failures in Monaco and Montreal have left him unemployed in recent months.
Martinez said: “We are very happy that Thierry is able to join us in the Euro game. His experience in championship games and knowledge related to national football have brought great added value to our employees.”
Henry will be at the Belgian headquarters next Sunday, when the Croatian national team will start playing in Brussels at 20:45.
Henry said: “This will be a sequel to an unfinished story, and we will do everything we can to make it a success.”
Belgium will be placed in Group B with Russia (June 12, St. Petersburg), Denmark (June 17, Copenhagen) and Finland (June 21, St. Petersburg).
