Manchester United star Jaap Stam directed Burnley coach Vincent Kompany to replace Roberto Martinez as coach of Belgium after their early exit from the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Belgium needed to beat Croatia in their final Group F match on Thursday night in order to reach the last 16.
But they were held 0-0 against Croatia, with Romelu Lukaku wasting several great chances to win the match for Belgium.
Belgium had beaten Canada and lost to Morocco in their first two group matches.
However, Stam believes the Belgian Football Association should look no further than Kompany, the former national team captain and Manchester City legend.
“In the end, I can see Vincent Kompany becoming manager of Belgium because he’s been doing so well,” Stam told soccer betting.
“He managed the right way because you need to learn at different levels and work with different players to eventually manage the national team.
“Roberto Martinez is a very good coach, he has a philosophy and he knows how he wants to play football.
On paper, they are [current Belgium team] We have an interesting team, but on the field they are not good enough.”
