Belgium boss Roberto Martinez believes his assistant Thierry Henry would be a great manager in near future.
Henry is likely to be given his first independent responsibility as he is expected to take charge at Monaco. The French club recently parted ways with long term manager Leonardo Jardim and are in the process of appointing a new coach.
Henry has already proved his mettle in coaching as he has been the vocal force behind Belgium’s rapid rise in the last few years. Belgium produced their best performance as they reached the semifinal of the World Cup where they got defeated by a brilliant French side.
Martinez has strongly backed the former Arsenal forward to thrive in this particular field. “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.”
