Anthony Barry departs Ireland coaching role to take up role with Belgium national team

Chelsea coach Anthony Barry has left his position as Stpehen Kenny’s assistant to start coaching the Belgium national team.

Barry joined Kenny's coaching staff in February 2021 for the FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign. Barry now moves to Belgium ahead of the FIFA 2022 World Cup finals later this year in Qatar.

"I've thoroughly enjoyed my time with the team and really enjoyed working with Stephen and the entire backroom staff and players” said Barry.

“I've been fortunate to work with some outstanding managers in my career and Stephen certainly falls into that bracket”.

"The opportunity to move on to Belgium and to have the chance to take part in the World Cup Finals was one I felt I couldn't turn down. Of course, I wish all of the team the very best of luck for the future."

"I'd like to thank Anthony for the positive contribution he has made over the past year with the players and staff alike," said Ireland manager Stephen Kenny.
