Just In: Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry set to become new Bournemouth manager

Thierry Henry will become Bournemouth’s new manager

Arsenal and France legend Thierry Henry is reportedly set to be appointed as Bournemouth’s new manager.

Jason Tindall was relieved of his duties at start of the month and senior first-team coach Jonathan Woodgate has been leading the side as caretaker boss over the last fortnight.

A host of high-profile names including John Terry, Patrick Vieira and David Wagner have held talks over the vacant position but Bournemouth appear to be closing in on Henry, with discussions at an advanced stage. Bournemouth dismissed Tindall earlier this month.

According to The Mirror, the Cherries are ‘convinced’ the iconic ex-Arsenal striker will take charge for the second half of the season, with the team sitting sixth in the Championship table. Henry, 43, has been in charge of MLS club CF Montreal since November 2019 – when he put pen to paper on a two-year contract – after a disappointing and brief stint at Monaco. The 1998 World Cup winner previously worked as Roberto Martinez’s assistant with the Belgium national side from 2016 to 2018.

Henry Celebrates In Arsenal’s Colour

Bournemouth’s primary goal is to return to the English top flight following their dramatic relegation under Eddie Howe on the final day of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign. The Dorset outfit have struggled for consistency throughout this term and have won just one of their last seven league matches ahead of their clash with 21st-placed Rotherham United at Dean Court.
