(SOUNDBITE) (English) BELGIAN NATIONAL SOCCER TEAM BELGIUM MANAGER, ROBERTO MARTINEZ, DISCUSSING THIERRY HENRY, SAYING: "We get, every time there is a vacancy there is a report on Thierry going so nothing changes apart from that Monaco is one of those clubs that he has a link (with).
Thierry (Henry) started at Monaco so I can guarantee you that he will be on the bench tomorrow and the only thing that matters is preparing the Switzerland game.
After that, you'll carry on with the speculation and one day, you'll hit the jackpot and you'll get it right." STORY: Chelsea and Belgium winger Eden Hazard said on Thursday (October 11) he might need to play for a Spanish club to win the Ballon d'Or best player in the world award, but he would not be leaving Chelsea in January.
The Belgian's contract at Stamford Bridge ends in June 2020 and the Blues want to renew his deal, although Hazard has said he would like to move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
In July Hazard said he wanted to move away from west London but ended up staying.
He is the Premier League's top scorer with seven goals.
Asked about the ongoing financial fraud and possible match-fixing enquiry targeting several Belgian clubs, Hazard said he wanted more information before commenting.
He did discuss rumours linking former French international and current Belgium assistant Thierry Henry with the head coach role at AS Monaco.
The French Ligue 1 club fired coach Leonardo Jardim on Thursday.
He said Belgium's 'Red Devils' would be sad to lose him but maybe it is a "good time to go." On the same subject, Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said Henry would join him at for the UEFA Nations League game against Switzerland on Friday (October 12).
"You'll carry on with the speculation and one day, you'll hit the jackpot and you'll get it right," he joked with journalists.
