He said: "I'm not so much in favour of another foreign national coach.

"For me, Philippe Clement is a candidate, but he is stuck at Rangers.

"Many other Belgian managers are not available too."

Clement won 38 caps for the Belgian team between 1998 and 2007 and scored one goal against Bulgaria 21 years ago.

However, Tedesco looks set to get a vote of confidence to lead Belgium into the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.
