Bordeaux in talks with Henry over managerial role

Bordeaux are in talks with Thierry Henry’s representatives about the possibility of becoming their next manager, according to reports from Sky Sports.

The French side is currently in dispute with former Sunderland boss Gus Poyet after he was critical of a transfer that had been made without his knowledge.

The club suspended Poyet after he called the transfer of Gaetan Laborde to rivals Montpellier “a disgrace.”

Henry’s interest in the role was brought to light on Monday by his long-time manager at Arsenal, Arsene Wenger.

“Yes, he wants to do it,” Wenger told Corse-Matin. “He is intelligent, and he has the qualities.

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

Henry has been working as an assistant to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez since 2016 and was part of the backroom staff that led the Red Devils to third at this summer’s World Cup.
