Bournemouth keen to make Thierry Henry their new manager

Bournemouth are keen on appointing Thierry Henry as their manager and the Arsenal legend is understood to be open to the role. The Championship club are ramping up their attempts to fill a position vacated by Jason Tindall a fortnight ago, with Jonathan Woodgate in interim charge.

The 43-year-old Henry is head coach of the MLS side CF Montréal. He has previously managed Monaco and been on Roberto Martínez’s coaching staff with Belgium. Henry signed a two-year contract with Montréal in November 2019 but Bournemouth want to speak to the former France international.

Tindall was sacked after six months following four straight defeats and Bournemouth have since been narrowing their shortlist. The former Huddersfield manager David Wagner is thought to have been interviewed. Henry’s former Arsenal teammate Patrick Vieira has been linked with the vacancy.

Woodgate is unbeaten but Bournemouth have maintained they are keen to appoint an external candidate, after promoting Tindall from within. Tindall worked as Eddie Howe’s assistant as the club soared from League Two to the Premier League.

Woodgate will take charge of the team, who are sixth in the Championship, at home to Rotherham on Wednesday.
