LIGA - FC Barcelona thinks of Thierry Henry to replace Ronald Koeman
We were just starting to get used to his flights and his punchlines at the microphone of Amazon Prime Video that Thierry Henry could resume his career on a sidelines.
According to information from Mundo Deportivo, the 1998 world champion and 2000 European champion is on the shortlist of FC Barcelona management to take up the torch in the event of the departure of Ronald Koeman.
The Dutchman in a press conference proves how the latter is under tension at the Blaugrana and does not feel supported by his directors. Asked on this Wednesday evening by various Spanish media, Joan Laporta obviously denied, assuring the technician of all his support. A facade speech, since for several days, many names have been appearing in the press for the post-Koeman period (Andrea Pirlo, Antonio Conte, Roberto Martinez, etc.).
In the columns of MD, therefore, this Thursday that of Thierry Henry, the former player of Barca (2007-2010), alongside that of Xavi. Assistant to Roberto Martinez in the Belgian NT in addition to his media activities, the native of Ulis had already been rumoured on the Barça bench when Ernesto Valverde was disembarked, in January 2020. He had at the time been considered too inexperienced by the management in place. Will the deal be different today?
Asked about his future by Le Parisien a few days ago, the person did not close any doors. “I remain the assistant of Belgium NT. I thank coach Roberto Martinez for reinstating me in the staff. I have Belgium, Amazon, I'm fine at the moment. Honestly, I don't feel any lack. We will see what the future holds for me, I am quietly awaiting the projects that will be offered to me in the future." He concluded. Barça know what to expect.
