Reports have it that Thierry Henry will take over the managing role at Girondins de Bordeaux, with the final decision on his appointment resting on General American Capital Partners (GACP) the club’s new owners.
The Arsenal legend is eager to take up the role, after Gus Poyet was suspended following his diatribe at the club over their transfer policy.
However, Poyet is still contracted to the club, but has been pushed out of his role at the club, with Bordeaux looking to fill the role.
Jurgen Klinsmann and Laurent Blanc were linked with the role, but Henry has emerged as the frontrunner for the job.
Bordeaux tried to offer Zinedine Zidane the opportunity to cut his teeth as a coach in the Gironde but now GACP, who take control of the club in September, will now make the final decision over whether to appoint Henry.
The Frenchman, who is currently an assistant coach with the Belgium national team, is very interested in the challenge, but only gave the green light to take to the role after certain conditions were met.
