The Spaniard has signed an extension to continue in his post until 2022 after his initial contract was set to expire this summer after Euro 2020 – which has now been postponed due to coronavirus. It should see him take charge of the side for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

And the Royal Belgian Football Federation decided to put a fun twist on the news of his signing by getting Hazard to react while playing on the popular video game.

Martinez has been in charge of the Red Devils since 2016, and guided them to third place at the 2018 World Cup and the top of the current FIFA world rankings.

His side were among the favourites for glory at Euro 2020, having won all 10 games in qualifying.
