Roberto Martinez has become an honorary citizen of Waterloo


Head coach of the Red Devils’, Roberto Martinez, is now an honorary citizen of Waterloo.

A ceremony was organised by town officials on Sunday at the Wellington Museum.

Martinez attended it with his wife Beth and their daughter Luella. Martinez is a Spaniard and his wife is Scottish by her nationality.

“When we arrived in Belgium, Waterloo was recommended to us and we do not regret our choice,” Martinez said.

“It’s a great place to live and all my family enjoy it. I love spending time here, the locals are hospitable and it’s very multicultural so the language is not a barrier. ”

Asked by RTL why he didn’t speak any of Belgium’s three official languages – French, Dutch and German – Martinez responded: “I think that my greatest strength since I have been a coach is that I am neutral, I understand the diversity and the difficulty we can experience because there are three official languages in Belgium.
