Belgium boss Roberto Martinez insisted Thierry Henry can become a “great coach” as he backed the Frenchman amid the Monaco vacancy.
Arsenal great Henry – Martinez’s assistant – is tipped to replace Leonardo Jardim at Monaco after the Portuguese was sacked by the Ligue 1 strugglers on Thursday.
Former Monaco forward Henry began his illustrious career at the principality club and helped them to Ligue 1 glory in 1997.
Asked about Henry’s links to Monaco following Belgium’s 2-1 win over Switzerland in the Nations League on Friday, head coach Martinez said: “Thierry Henry’s leaving? You must be better informed than me. I can’t confirm this news but we all know he will leave us one day.
“Whether it’s Saturday, a week or six months away, we are prepared for it. Thierry has brought all his experience and when he leaves, he will have all our support.
“Thierry has the potential to become a great coach, which he will certainly quickly become.”
