The Belgian national soccer team, which marked the end of the golden generation, is looking for the next head coach. The existing squad wants the head coach to be promoted, but the Belgian Football Association has a different idea.
The British ‘Daily Mail’ quoted Belgian media on the 11th (Korean time) and said, “The Belgian Football Association is not interested in making Thierry Henry the new head coach.”
Belgium parted ways with manager Roberto Martinez after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Belgium, which had been led by coach Martinez since 2016, had high expectations for the summit with the advent of the golden generation, but did not produce any significant results. At the World Cup in Qatar, he was disgraced by being eliminated in the group stage. 스포츠토토
Belgium’s star players retired after the World Cup, making it important to establish a new era. Belgium, which is preparing a new managerial candidate, has ruled out Henry. After his retirement as a player, Henry worked for a long time as the Belgian national team’s head coach, assisting manager Martinez. It is known that Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan) and Toby Alderweireld (Royal Antwerp), who have spent a lot of time with Henry, have requested the appointment of Henry as manager.
However, Belgium are not interested in Henry and are considering coach Hervé Renard, who stunned the world at the World Cup. Coach Lenar made a surprise by defeating Argentina, who led Saudi Arabia to win the World Cup, in their first game.
Although Saudi Arabia was eliminated from the group stage with 1 win and 2 losses, Coach Lenar is receiving positive reviews. It was revealed that he had applied to coach Belgium, although Renard had a contract with Saudi Arabia until 2027.
