Shaun Maloney Lands Big International Coaching Job With Belgium

Shaun Maloney has landed a big international coaching job with Belgium.

The former Celtic midfielder is currently at the club acting as a coach for their youth team and has been earning positive reviews at that.

He’s not even the head coach of that team, with Tommy McIntyre currently in charge of that side.

But Maloney’s quality as a coach hasn’t gone unnoticed with Roberto Martinez as the Belgium manager has moved to add his former player to the coaching staff of the World Cup semi-finalists.

That news was revealed earlier today by Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur:

That is a big job for Maloney – and should see him continue his rise to becoming a manager at some point in the future.

The ex-Scotland international played under Martinez at Wigan, helping them win a historic FA Cup in 2013.

Maloney actually set up the goal in that game, crossing for Ben Watson to score the winning goal.
