‘Thierry Henry to Bordeaux?

Thierry Henry

The former Arsenal Legend Thiery Henry who left his post as the assistant of Belgium last month as yet again turned down an opportunity to take over the French League one club Bordeaux.

The former manager of Bordeaux Gus Payet was said to have been sacked after he branded the club as “a disgrace” due to the transfer of his striker Gaetan Laborde to Montpellier without his notice.

Henry’s tactical approach as an assistant manager showcased when he unanimously saw Belgium through to the semi-final in Russia. Aston Villa came calling for his signature afterwards but he turned them down at the stage when he wanted to swap his former coach Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

As things stand, it seems the Frenchman is likely to repeat what he did in a different version as it implies that neither Henry nor the boards are yet to confirm that negotiations have packed up. It seems improbable that his foremost job will be at Bordeaux.

It was reported that Thiery Henry who recorded close to 200 Premier League goals before moving to Barcelona also left his position as Sky Sports pundit in the summer to focus more on his coaching career.

After seeing what he did at Arsenal as an optimistic footballer with poignant touches, his supporters are assertive to grasp is smooth display and aptitude; not as an assistant, but as a coach of a football club.
