Arsene Wenger says Thierry Henry wants to take charge of Bordeaux.
Bordeaux are on the hunt for a new manager after Gus Poyet was sacked for criticising the club’s board over the sale of Gaetan Laborde to Montpelier without his knowledge.
Poyet lost his job at the Nouveau Stade after labelling Bordeaux’s board a ‘disgrace’ following the side’s Europa League victory over Mariupol. ‘What happened with Gaëtan Laborde is a disgrace,’ the Uruguayan said.
‘I asked the club not to sell him until we bring in another player. They didn’t listen to me, they let Laborde leave. ‘We arrived at the hotel today at 11.45am, Laborde was not there. We called him, he was at Montpelier. Nobody said anything to us. I will discuss with my agent and then make a decision.’
Thierry Henry is Bordeaux’s number one target to succeed Poyet and it’s understood the iconic Frenchman has been approached over the vacant position.
“Yes, he wants to do it,” Wenger told Corse Matin. “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.”
