Thierry Henry

Where is Thierry Henry now?

Arsenal’s all time top goalscorer and club legend Thierry Henry retired from playing in 2014 after a two year spell in the USA with the New York Red Bulls.

At the end of the 2013-14 MLS season and whilst still an active player, Henry was signed by the BBC to provide match analysis for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil where he proved to be a huge success with the viewing public because of his smooth, insightful punditry style

As soon as Thierry Henry announced his retirement from playing he was immediately signed by Sky Sports to join their team of football experts and also represent the company in an ambassadorial role.

In 2016, Henry was once again signed up by the BBC as one of their main pundits and analysts for their coverage of the Euro 2016 tournament.

Henry has expressed a desire to go into football coaching and in March 2016 completed his UEFA A coaching badges which allows him to manage anywhere below Premier League level.

In order to fulfil part of his coaching badges qualification, Henry assisted with the coaching at the Arsenal academy with their under 16’s team and also their under 19’s team.

In July 2016, Henry was offered the job assisting with the Arsenal under 18’s team but the decision was overruled by manager Arsene Wenger as he said that it was a full time position and that he couldn’t combine it with his Sky Television commitments.

This move ultimately led to Henry leaving Arsenal to continue working toward his UEFA Pro Licence elsewhere.

In a move that surprised many, Thierry Henry was appointed assistant manager of the Belgium national team in August 2016 working alongside former Everton manager Roberto Martinez.

He performs his coaching duties alongside his media commitments for Sky Sports.
