Thierry Henry has been appointed as “second assistant coach” to new Belgium boss Roberto Martinez, the KBVB has announced.

Henry left his role as Arsenal Under-18 boss in July after Arsene Wenger reportedly refused to sanction the former France international combining the role with his television commitments.

And that has allowed him to link-up with Martinez, who took over as Red Devils boss after Marc Wilmots was sacked following Belgium’s disappointing Euro 2016 exit at the hands of Wales.

Chris Van Puyvelde, the KBVB executive director, said: “Roberto Martínez’s assistant coach will be Graeme Jones.

“Thierry Henry will be the second assistant coach.”

Van Puyvelde added: “Richard Evans has been added to our staff as Head of Team and Individual Fitness and our goalkeeping coaches are Erwin Lemmens and Inaki Bergara.”

It is the appointment of Henry that catches the eye, though, with Martinez eager to talk up the 39-year-old.

He said: “We are here to help the real quality we have. We need to support the players.

“Thierry Henry has been in the situation to change the spirit into winning something.

“I am very satisfied that the KBVB has been able to create an impressive staff.”
