More Details

The last coaching experience of Thierry Henry is that of assistant to Roberto Martinez in the Belgian senior men’s national team.

Contacted by Jean-Michel Aulas, Thierry Henry refused the post of coach of the French women’s team, according to “Le Figaro”. He will not succeed Corinne Deacon.

Thierry Henry was one of the names checked to succeed Corinne Diacre at the head of the selection of the French women’s team as L’Équipe announced on Thursday.

The 1998 world champion declined the proposal according to Le Figaro.


Jean-Michel Aulas admitted that he contacted the former Monaco and France striker by telephone to suggest the position: “The response was not positive. He was obviously very flattered to be consulted. We did it because we were told he might be interested. It will not be Thierry Henry. I believe that he is gearing up for other projects,” said the president of Olympique Lyonnais.

“JMA” gave details on the progress of the research: “We consulted five and there are two and a half left, because there is a combination between the first and the second deputy. It’s progressing well. We have finished our pre-consultations, we are in the choice, I think, by tomorrow evening (Friday). The Lyonnais has confirmed that the names of Jocelyn Gourvennec and Gérard Prêcheur are in the pipeline.”

Corinne Diacre was dismissed as coach of the France team last week after key players like Wendie Renard and Kadidatou Diani decided not to be part of the team under Diacre.


Danielle van de Donk has extended her deal with French D1 Arkema Champions, Lyon for the next two years.
