Thierry Henry: Roberto Martinez's New Assistant Manager

Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry will serve as an assistant to new Belgium coach Roberto Martinez, the Belgian federation has announced.

Henry will be part of the backroom staff alongside Graeme Jones, who was Martinez’s assistant at Swansea, Wigan and Everton.

Henry told social media: “Honoured to be assistant coach for Belgium. Thanks to Roberto Martinez and the Royal Belgian FA. Very excited. Can’t wait.”

He joins the coaching team of Roberto Martinez, who replaced Marc Wilmots at the start of August.

“Thierry is an important figure,” said former Everton boss Martinez. “He will bring something different. He agreed right away to join us.”

Martinez also named his first senior squad on Friday, ahead of their friendly against Spain on Thursday 1 September.
