Belgian FA President, Francois De Keersemacker said: "Van Gaal might be a potential candidate. We will see if he puts himself forward as a candidate. If he does then we will evaluate his candidacy."

Chris van Puyvelde, the Belgian FA's technical director, suggests whoever is the new manager must have a history of success on the international stage.

Puyvelde was quoted: "It's an open process; I expect my mailbox is going to be flooded [with applications].

"We want a candidate to have experience and to have already achieved results in international football. He must play modern football.

"He must show tactical acumen and flexibility to adapt because no one game or no opponent are ever the same.

"He must also deliver a high-performance environment because the players he is working with are used to working at a high level.

"We have a special generation and they need to be allowed to also take decisions of their own."
