Arsenal legend and Sky Sports pundit, Thierry Henry, has been named the assistant manager of Belgium national team.
He will be working as assistant to Manager Roberto Martinez.
Martinez, former Everton manager, said: “Thierry brings something completely different. He’s someone who has been in the situation of having to develop a mentality in a team of chasing the dream of winning something special for his country. He is very much an important figure in our staff and we hope he will pass on his experience to the players.
It would be recalled that Gunners boss, Arsene Wenger frustrated the former French international’s hopes of holding a coaching position at the Emirates, asking him to choose between coaching and TV.
Henry’s decision to join a national team is viewed as a smart move to help him keep his Sky Sports analyst job, where he had been quoted many times criticising Arsenal players including Wenger’s match decisions.
