Arsenal legend Thierry Henry spent nearly two hours advising Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Christian Benteke on how to improve their game.

The Gunners’ all-time record goalscorer was appointed assistant coach of the Belgium national team after opting against a youth team role at Arsenal.

And Lukaku has revealed the prolific former France international is already having an influence over the forwards in the Belgium camp.

The Everton striker, who reportedly rejected Juventus earlier in the summer, told reporters: “With Benteke and Hazard, he took us to one side.

“He corrected my manner of getting away from markers.

“We stayed for a long time in front of the screen, and he pointed out our mistakes, corrected us. We listened carefully. It took nearly two hours, but it was great.”

Benteke, 25, joined Crystal Palace for a reported £32m fee from Liverpool in August.

The ex-Aston Villa and Genk star has played two games for Alan Pardew’s Eagles and will hope to open his account for the club at Middlesbrough this weekend.
