Former RB Leipzig Manager Replaces Martinez As Belgium Head Coach

The Belgian Football Assocation (FA) has named Former RB Leipzig manager Domenico Tedesco head coach of Belgium men's national team.

Tedesco comes on board as a replacement for Roberto Martinez who stood down after six years in charge following Belgium's group-stage exit at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

According to the Belgian FA, the 37-year-old would sign a contract until after Euro 2024 and his first game in charge will be their opening qualifier against Sweden in Stockholm on March 24.

"For me it is a great honour to be the new head coach of Belgium," Tedesco said in a statement.

"I'm really looking forward to the task and I'm extremely motivated.

"I had a very good feeling right from the first conversation."

Tedesco, who was born in Italy but grew up in Germany, began coaching at the age of 31  with the Stuttgart and Hoffenheim youth teams..

In his years as a manager, he has also coached Schalke 04, Spartak Moscow and RB Leipzig.

He won Leipzig the German Cup and took them to the semi-finals of the Europa League last season but was sacked in September after a poor start to the 2022-23 campaign.
