Vieira hails imminent Henry appointment  as Bordeaux  boss

24 Aug 2018, 10:55

Patrick Vieira has termed imminent Bordeaux's Thierry Henry appointment as ‘good’.

The Arsenal legend is expected to take over the club from caretaker Eric Bedouet who was appointed after Gus Poyet was suspended. Poyet was relieved of his duties after openly criticizing the club’s transfer activity. He was particularly irked by the sale forward Gaetan Laborde to Montpellier.

"It would be very good for Bordeaux. It would be very good for him. It would be very good for Ligue 1 because of his notoriety. I know he's someone who really wants to be a coach and he has the means to succeed. He has had a lot of experiences. I think it would be a great thing for football because he has a lot to contribute and a lot to give." Vieira, who played with Henry at Arsenal said.

After resigning from Sky Sports as a pundit, Henry was linked with Egypt’s vacant position and Aston Villa. Steve Bruce has remained at Villa while the Pharaoh’s have appointed Javier Aguirre to replace Hector Cuper.

"[Henry] wants to be a coach. He has had his offers and he has made his choice and has the means to succeed. He wants to be a coach. Whether it's for Bordeaux or another challenge, it would be good for him and it would be good for football as well." Vieira added.

Should Henry be finally appointed, he will be facing off with Vierra as managers of Ligue 1 sides, Nice and Bordeaux.
