Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has turned down a chance to become the France female national team manager as he waits for another exciting opportunity.
The legendary striker has been unsuccessful in his bid to make a name for himself as a manager and failed in a stint at AS Monaco before leaving his role at CF Montreal.
Nowadays, he can be seen in many studios in several matches on punditry duty, but Henry longs to succeed as a manager and never hides that fact.
Having been Roberto Martinez’s assistant in the Belgian national team, the Frenchman reportedly wanted the role permanently after Martinez left, but he was snubbed.
He is searching for a new chance, but Get French Football reports he was offered the chance to become the next manager of the France female national team, but he turned it down.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, who is part of the team created to find a new manager for the female Les Bleus side, said:
“I personally asked him about it. His answer was not affirmative.”
As one of the biggest stars the game has ever seen, it is embarrassing for Henry to manage a female national team, and it could be a clear sign that he has failed in management.
The striker deserves another chance, but in all fairness, he probably should dedicate his life to being a pundit because he is achieving success there and his experience in the game helps him to analyse games better.
