Henry denies contacting Belgian FA over national team job

Thierry Henry has categorically denied contacting the Belgian FA regarding the vacant position as national team manager.

Roberto Martinez left the Red Devils after their World Cup group stage exit in Qatar in December and Henry worked as the Spaniard's assistant head coach.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona striker has been strongly linked to the vacancy and reports in Belgium claimed Henry put himself forward for the job,

But Henry has set the record straight insisting there has been no approach from his side.

Henry told Sky Sports: "I would like to make it abundantly clear that contrary to written reports, I have never contacted the Belgian FA offering my services as the new first team coach.

"I think it's vital that the truthful version of facts is always presented."

Former Belgium boss Martinez has since been confirmed as the new manager of the Portuguese national team
