Robert Waseige (born 26 August 1939 in Rocourt) is a Belgian football manager and a former player. He became the coach of Belgium before the Euro 2000 and lead Belgium to the second round at the 2002 World Cup.

He then left the national as he had signed a contract with Standard Liège prior to the 2002 World Cup tournament. After a deceiving start in the Jupiler League he was fired by the club and replaced by caretaker Dominique D'Onofrio. He later managed Algeria. Waseige also managed several other clubs: Winterslag, FC Liège, Lokeren, Charleroi, FC Brussels and Sporting in Portugal. As a player, he wore the shirts of FC Liège, Racing White and Winterslag. He has been for some time a consultant for BeTV, a Belgian private TV channel.
