Chelsea’s Anthony Barry is heading to Qatar with Belgium, according to a report.

The highly-rated coach was strongly linked with the vacant managerial job at Huddersfield Town but has seemingly turned down the opportunity in order to assist Roberto Martinez at the World Cup.

According to The Sun, Huddersfield didn’t want to wait until after the tournament to appoint the 36-year-old, who has been widely touted as one of England’s best young coaches.

It has also been reported that several other clubs in the Football League have shown interest in Barry’s services.

But clubs are not willing to let the Chelsea man leave on a temporary basis whilst the tournament runs from November 20 to December 18.

Danny Schofield was relieved from his duties as the Terriers’ head coach earlier this month with the side 23rd in the Championship after losing last year’s play-off final.

He only took over in July after former boss Carlos Corberan quit just 22 days before the start of the season,  citing the board’s lack of a ‘vision’ for the reason behind his departure.

Despite looking at several Premier League coaches including Michael Carrick and Gary O’Neil, the club are reportedly set to appoint former manager David Wagner as their new boss.

Wagner was in charge of Huddersfield between 2015 and 2019 and earned the club promotion to the Premier League.

He left by mutual consent in January of 2019 with the club bottom of England’s top division, but they have declined since and are currently in danger of dropping into League One.
