Henry Accepts Offer To Become New Bordeaux Manager

Former Arsenal and FC Barcelona striker Thierry Henry has reportedly agreed terms for his first head coaching job, with an announcement said to be imminent.

Thierry Henry has agreed to take over as the new manager of Bordeaux and wants to recruit his former Arsenal teammate Gilles Grimandi as his assistant.

Thierry Henry became assistant manager of Belgium back in 2016, working alongside manager Roberto Martinez.

He was part of the backroom staff that led Belgium to third place at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Henry made 254 appearances for Arsenal between 1999 and 2007 and won 123 caps for France.

The Ligue 1 club are searching for a replacement for Gus Poyet who was sacked earlier this week and subsequently branded the club's board a "disgrace".

Bordeaux recently suspended Poyet after an extraordinary press conference rant in which he criticised the club's transfer policy.

"The existential question that we always ask ourselves is whether we are ready to sacrifice our life for the coaching profession".

In July, Henry quit his role as a pundit on Sky Sports in order to achieve his ambitions of becoming manager.

The 41-year-old, France's record goal scorer, would join Patrick Vieira as the latest member of the national team's 1998 World Cup-winning squad to manage in the country's top flight, after the former Arsenal midfielder joined Nice this season.
