Thierry Henry wants Bordeaux coaching job, says Arsene Wenger

After a successful spell shadowing Roberto Martinez as his assistant for Belgium at this summer's World Cup, Henry appears to be set to embark on his own journey.

Henry is already looking at potential names who could form his backroom staff at Bordeaux and one of his former Arsenal team-mates could join him at the Ligue 1 club.

The former France global - victor of the 1998 World Cup - replaces former Uruguay worldwide Gus Poyet at the helm of the Ligue 1 side. The appointment sees Henry take his first full-time role as a head coach.

Canadians Wickens, Hinchcliffe crash out at IndyCar Pocono race
Fittipaldi and Hinchcliffe were released after having X-rays, according to Curt Cavin, IndyCar's vice president of communications. That incident required the race to be halted for more than two hours while substantial damage to the fencing was repaired.

Henry has agreed a deal in principle to become the next coach of Bordeaux, who sacked Gus Poyet last week after his tirade against the club hierarchy in a press conference. He later moved to Barcelona, with whom he won the 2009 Champions League.

Bordeaux sold striker Gaetan Laborde to rivals Montpellier and Poyet reacted furiously after their Europa League win over FC Mariupol, labelling the transfer "a disgrace".

However, the club refused to comment on reports linking 41-year-old Henry with the coaching hotseat especially with Poyet officially still the man in charge.
