Arsenal legend Henry discusses Aston Villa and Egypt links

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has been discussing his recent links to the managerial jobs at Championship club Aston Villa and the Egypt national team.

Henry recently quit his £4 million-a-year job as a Premier League pundit with Sky Sports, to fully focus on his ambition of becoming a manager.

The 40-year-old former France international has spent the last two years as assistant coach to ex-Everton boss Roberto Martinez with Belgium, although he has now decided that he would like to become the main man.

He was linked with taking over at Championship side Aston Villa, before the club’s new investors decided to keep the faith current boss Steve Bruce after he led them to last season’s Play-Off final.

However, Henry has taken to social media to announce that none of the media reports linking him with managerial posts have any substance to them, and that he is waiting patiently for the right opportunity to present itself.

“Since announcing my decision to quit my position as a full-time TV consultant to pursue my ambition of becoming a manager, my name was subsequently associated with a number of positions at both the national and international levels,” he said on his Twitter account.

“Unlike this misleading information that people can read right now, neither I nor my consultants have had discussions with any club or national federation. My intention has always been to be patient and I will make my decision at the right time.”
