Arsenal legend Henry set to be named new Bournemouth manager

Thierry Henry is set to become the new Bournemouth manager, according to reports.

The likes of Patrick Vieira, David Wagner and John Terry have all been potential candidates for the vacancy following the Cherries’ sacking of Jason Tindall.

But as per Darren Lewis from The Mirror, Bournemouth believe they have convinced Henry to take the reins at the Vitality Stadium in what would be his first managerial job in England.

The Arsenal and France legend has served as assistant manager to Roberto Martinez with the Belgium national team and had a brief, unsuccessful stint in charge of former club AS Monaco.

He is currently managing Montreal Impact in the MLS, having taken the job in November 2019.

Bournemouth promoted coach Tindall to manager after long-time boss Eddie Howe resigned following the club’s relegation to the Championship last season.

However he was dismissed after less than six months in the hot-seat, with Jonathan Woodgate placed in temporary charge.

Henry appeared to be close to becoming Aston Villa manager back in 2018 before turning down the job.
