Thierry Henry agrees to become coach of FC Bordeaux

Thierry Henry agrees to become coach of FC Bordeaux - Former France forward Thierry Henry has agreed to become coach of FC Girondins de Bordeaux. Henry, who enjoyed a club career with Arsenal and Barcelona, had been assistant coach for the Belgian national team. He replaces former Uruguay international Gus Poyet at the helm of the Ligue 1 side. Poyet had been suspended last week for his comments on the club's transfer dealings. Henry, France's record goalscorer, would join Patrick Vieira as the latest member of the national team's 1998 World Cup winning squad to manage in the country's top flight after he joined Nice this season. Bordeaux has won the French league title six times with the last championship coming in 2009 under the leadership of another 1998 World Cup winner, Laurent Blanc.
