Thierry Henry has reportedly decided to decline Bordeaux’s offer to become their new boss, amid concerns over their transfer budget.
The Arsenal and France legend has been locked in discussions with Bordeaux over becoming their new manager following Gus Poyet’s suspension from the post.
The Uruguayan coach spoke out against the club following the sale of striker Gaetan Laborde to rivals Montpellier without his permission.
Bordeaux were keen on appointing Henry as his replacement and had given the 41-year-old the weekend to decide whether he wants to begin his managerial career in his homeland with the Ligue 1 side.
Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confirmed that Henry was indeed interested in the role.
But Sky Sports revealed that Henry has had lingering doubts over the club’s ownership with an unnamed American firm currently in talks over a potential takeover.
Bordeaux won the first game of their 2018/19 Ligue 1 campaign at home on Sunday by beating AS Monaco 2-1.
The club is currently in 15th place in the league table after losing their first two matches.
