Thierry Henry wants Bordeaux coaching job, says Arsene Wenger

Thierry Henry wants Bordeaux coaching job, says Arsene Wenger

French news outlet RMC Sport report that the former France worldwide and Arsenal legend has agreed to become the new manager at Les Girondins, replacing Gus Poyet at the helm.

He was reported to have dumped his punditry job with Sky Sports last season in search of getting an opportunity to manage a team.

Henry, who played under Wenger at the North London club, became assistant manager of World Cup semi-finalists Belgium in 2016.

The decision to suspend the Uruguayan comes after he launched a furious tirade at the Bordeaux board over their decision to sell the striker Gaetan Laborde to Ligue 1 rivals Montpellier.

VERONICA MARS Revival in Development at HULU
The limited nature of the new Mars series is largely because filming will have to work around her schedule on the sitcom. Now it looks like the original cast might also return, though those deals are also still under discussion.

Telegraph Sport understands that there is interest in Henry from Bordeaux, a national association and at least one club in England.

Henry has agreed a deal in principle to become the next coach of Bordeaux, who sacked Gus Poyet last week after his tirade against the club hierarchy in a press conference.

During his 20-year playing career, he won 20 major titles with clubs and country - with the 1998 World Cup topping the chart, as he also won Champions League title with Barcelona in 2009. That Belgium did so well at the World Cup boosted Henry's profile as a coach, and he announced shortly after that he would leave Sky to focus on becoming a manager full-time.

And following the sudden news of Poyet, former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger revealed Henry wanted to take his first step into management at Bordeaux.
