After Roberto Martinez’s red card against Wales (2-1), Thierry Henry should act as interim on the bench for the Red Devils in the next match.
A big first for Thierry Henry? The former France team striker could take over as Belgium coach during Roberto Martinez’s suspension on Sunday night against the Netherlands.

Against Wales (2-1), Martinez was sent off for keeping the ball too long during a touch in favor of the Welsh.
” It’s a first, said the Belgian coach at the last hour. I was surprised. When I took the ball, I saw the Welsh player coming and I didn’t look for confrontation. It could have been yellow… but red? If I am suspended, I have a technical staff who will replace me: there is Thierry Henry who is my first assistant and Anthony Barry, the second. But maybe I will be bleached? »
