Belgium renews contract with Roberto Martinez

The Spaniard is excited to still be in charge of the “Red Devils of Belgium Belgium”. He his currently in charge of the most talented generation of Belgium Football history and the country has rewarded his effort with a new contract till 2022.

The head coach Roberto Martinez has signed a contract extension with the national side that will see him remain in charge throughout the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Martinez, who had previously taken on managerial roles at Swansea, Wigan and Everton, took charge of the Red Devils in August of 2016.

The Spaniard’s original deal was set to come to an end following Euro 2020 – which has now been shifted back a year due to the coronavirus pandemic – but a two-year extension will see him guide a golden generation of players through two major tournaments, all going well.

The 46-year-old had stated in recent months that it was his desire to remain in Belgium’s dugout for the European championships, where the nation will face Denmark, Finland and Russia in the tournament’s Group B.

Belgium, who are currently leading the way in FIFA’s official world rankings, qualified for the Euros in stellar fashion, winning all 10 of their match-ups while conceding only three times and scoring 40 goals.

That, of course, came after Balaguer-born coach led the team to third place in the 2018 World Cup, beating England in the third-place play-off.

Big things are expected of a side that boasts some incredible talents in the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois.

Indeed, many of the country’s top talents will be in their peak years when the next tournament rolls around, with only Dries Mertens and Thomas Vermaelen approaching their mid-30s ahead of next year’s Euros.

Martinez is set to address the press on Wednesday to comment on his new deal alongside CEO Peter Bossaert, President Mehdi Bayat and Director Marketing & Communications Manu Leroy.
