Revealed: Arsenal legend interested in Bordeaux job
Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed Thiery Henry wants to take charge at Ligue 1 club, Bordeaux.
Bordeaux suspended boss Gus Poyet for a sensational outburst over the sale of Gaetan Laborde who joined Montpellier and may soon look for a new boss. Poyet reacted furiously when the club's press officer tried to put an end to the conference on Thursday and went on to slam the decision to sell striker Laborde to Montpellier in a £4.5million deal. Wenger believes the post would suit Henry's capabilities who is still looking to make his first step into management.
Speaking to Corse Matin, Wenger said, "Yes, he wants to do it, 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."
"Being passionate is selfish work. When you are passionate, you steal your time from those whom you love and to whom you could have given much more," he added.
Henry, who is a Belgium assistant coach, left his role as a pundit at Sky Sports this summer saying he wants to focus on his management career.
