Former Arsenal captain, Thierry Henry, has agreed terms for a permanent role with Belgium’s coaching staff until after the 2022 World Cup. The country’s football federation confirmed this on Monday.

Henry returned to the coaching staff in May, after working as an assistant coach for Belgium from 2016-2018. He was also with the team for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where the Red Devils reached the semi-finals.

Belgium were eliminated by eventual champions Italy in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020 this summer.

Henry retired from playing football in December 2014. His coaching career includes stints at Monaco and Major League Soccer team Montreal.
