Thierry Henry has been named as the Belgium national team’s new assistant coach.
The Arsenal legend will remain in his role as a pundit for Sky Sports while working alongside head coach Roberto Martinez.
The 39-year-old former France international left Arsenal’s backroom staff earlier this summer after the north London club asked him to focus solely on coaching.
He joins Belgium’s backroom staff alonside Graeme Jones, Martinez’s assistant at Swansea City, Wigan Athletic and Everton.
The Belgian national team’s official Twitter account quoted Martinez as saying: “Thierry Henry has been in the situation to change the spirit into winning something…
“I’m very satisfied that (the Belgian federation) has been able to create an impressive staff.”
It was also announced that fitness coach Richard Evans, who like Jones followed Martinez from Swansea to Everton via Wigan, would take up a similar role with the national team.
