Henry to be named new Bordeaux manager

| |

Former France forward, Thierry Henry , has agreed to become the new manager of French Ligue 1 side, Girondis Bordeaux, according to reports in France.

The Arsenal legend walked away from his Sky Sports punditry work after last season with a view to taking on a position as number-one in a coaching job.

After a successful spell shadowing Roberto Martinez as his assistant for Belgium at this summer’s World Cup, Henry appears to be set to embark on his own journey.

RMC claim Henry has said yes to the Ligue 1 club following the sacking of Gus Poyet, who labelled the club’s board a ‘disgrace’.

The former Sunderland boss was furious at the decision to sell Gaetan Laborde behind his back.

And the players refused to train in protest, but the decision has not been changed, and now Henry looks set to come in as the Uruguayan’s replacement.
