Thierry Henry to be named new Bournemouth manager

Thierry Henry is set to be announced as the new Bournemouth manager, according to the Daily Mirror.

Bournemouth believe they have convinced the Arsenal legend to take over the reins at the Vitality Stadium. The 43-year-old is currently the manager of MLS side Montreal. He joined the club in November 2019 on a two-year-contract.

Prior to his time with Montreal, Henry had an ill-fated spell as the manager of French side Monaco, the team he started his career with, in 2018. He was sacked within four months of taking the job as Monaco found themselves in 19th place in the French league. He won four games, drew five and lost 11 in his 20 games in charge of Monaco.

Before taking the Monaco job, Henry spent two years working as the assistant to Roberto Martinez in the Belgium setup. He was the assistant manager of Belgium in the 2018 FIFA World Cup when they reached the semi-final. 

Henry is believed to be at the top of Bournemouth’s list of managerial targets ahead of fellow Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira, John Terry and former Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner.

This will be the Frenchman’s first job in English football. He will replace Jason Tindall who was sacked by Bournemouth two weeks ago. The Cherries are currently in sixth place in the EFL Championship. They occupy the last playoff place and are aiming to achieve promotion to the Premier League.
