NEW Belgium manager Domenico Tedesco has decided against keeping Arsenal legend and Frenchman, Thierry Henry, on as his No2.
Tedesco, 37, replaced Roberto Martinez after the Red Devils crashed out in the group stages at the World Cup in Qatar last November-December.
After his dismissal, Martinez replaced Euro 2016-winning manager, Fernando Santos, as Portugal head coach after 68-year-old was let go for losing to Morocco in the quarters.
Belgium took a few months to choose Martinez’s successor, but settled on up-and-coming star Tedesco.
The Italian-German football coach made his name in the Bundesliga and Russian league.
His only career trophy to date came at RB Leipzig, where he won the DFB-Pokal in 2022.
And he has decided against keeping serial winner Henry as his No2 in the Belgium set-up, it has been confirmed.
On his appointment, Tedesco said: “For me it is a great honour to be the new head coach of Belgium.
“I’m really looking forward to the task and I’m extremely motivated.
“I had a very good feeling right from the first conversation.”
Belgium are next in action in March when they take on Germany and Sweden in qualifying games for Euro 2024.
As for Henry, it isn’t known whether he intends to seek another managerial position.
The football icon previously managed Monaco and Montreal CF but his position in both posts didn’t last long.
