Thierry Henry, who is currently the assistant coach of Belgium has denied reports about taking over Egypt or Aston Villa.
It means the world has to wait a little bit more to see the France legend as a manager.
Some reports suggested Henry was set to become Egypt’s manager.
The former Arsenal player was the assistant of Belgium during the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. He had a successful campaign, as the red devils were the semi-finalist. They were only one step away from lifting the World Cup but Henry’s country France broke the dreams of Belgium.
Some reports claimed Thierry Henry already had discussions with the Egypt management and he was ready to take the job. But on his Twitter account on Thursday, Henry said he is yet to hold talks regarding any job.
“Since announcing my decision to leave my full time role in broadcasting to pursue my ambition of becoming a manager, I have subsequently been linked with a number of positions both domestically and internationally. Contrary to misleading reports people may have read… at this moment neither myself, nor my advisers have held any discussions with any club or national association. My intention has always been to be patient, and I will take my decision in good time.”
However, Henry has shown interest in becoming a manager in the past as well. And becoming the assistant of Belgium was the start of his managerial career. In a press conference last month, Henry said,
“Over the last four years I have had some extremely rewarding coaching experiences in football. These experiences have only made me more determined to fulfil my long-term ambition to become a football manager.”
Before taking the role of assistant coach, Henry worked as a pundit on Sky Sports.
