Thierry Henry news

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has emerged as a potential replacement for Steve Bruce at Championship side Aston Villa, according to reports.

Henry recently quit his position as a pundit for Sky Sports in order to have more time to pursue his coaching career.

Egyptian multi-billionaire Nassef Sawiris has bought a stake in the club, and with that he can take key decisions in the club.

He is reportedly now looking for a manager to replace Steve Bruce who almost got them to the Premier League last term.

As a player, Henry worked under some of the best managers the game has seen. He worked under Arsene Wenger at Arsenal and Pep Guardiola at Barcelona.

He was one of Roberto Martinez's assistants at the just concluded FIFA World Cup in Russia, reportedly helping Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku to improve his game.

There is no doubt that the 1998 World Cup winner has been taught how to play the game by some of the best, it remains to be seen if he will be able to do the same should the opportunity emerge at Villa.
