»Domenico Tedesco is the new head coach of our devils.

Good luck, coach!” This is how the Belgian association announced the commitment of the 37-year-old Tedesco as coach of the Belgian national team.

He succeeds the Spaniard Roberto Martínez, who looked after the "Red Devils" between 2016 and 2022.

At the World Cup in Qatar, Belgium, World Cup semi-finalists from 2018, failed in the group stage.

"It's a great honor for me to be the new head coach of the Belgian national team," said Tedesco, according to the association's statement: "I'm really looking forward to the task and I'm extremely motivated.

I had a very good feeling from the first conversation.«

An association task force chose Tedesco, who was released from DFB Cup winners RB Leipzig in September, as the ideal solution.

The German-Italian had previously looked after Schalke 04 from 2017 to 2019.

Tedesco receives a contract until 2024.
