Belgium's Romelu Lukaku 'very pleased' with Thierry Henry's impact

Romelu Lukaku is enjoying working under Belgium coach Thierry Henry, whose direct style is helping him to improve and become a better player.

Lukaku has scored three goals in three games for Belgium since Roberto Martinez became manager and appointed Henry as a coach.

"I think he [Henry] teaches me a lot. He is very direct with me," Lukaku told reporters. "I know what I'm doing well, when I am doing something wrong he tells me as well. I am very pleased with his help here.

"I think he helps us, the strikers, and also the team to have a certain concentration when we are on the pitch.

"He's won it all so when someone like him talks, you listen."

Lukaku is also enjoying a second spell under the management of Martinez, whom he previously worked with at Everton.

"We do it with the manager too," he added. "He teaches us a lot tactically, offensively and defensively, so I think the future looks bright for us."
