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.
Henry amassed a huge amount of trophies during his illustrious club career including two Premier League titles, and three FA Cup wins with Arsenal, two La Liga wins and the UEFA Champions League with Barcelona and he also won the Ligue 1 title with Monaco.
He was also a big part of the French national team which dominated world football in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, winning the 1998 FIFA World Cup, the UEFA European Championship in 2000 and the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup.
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.
Having expressed a desire to go into football coaching upon finishing playing, Henry completed his UEFA A coaching badges in March 2016 allowing 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, Henry was appointed assistant manager of the Belgium national team in August 2016 working alongside former Everton manager Roberto Martinez.
Together the pair oversaw a successful World Cup campaign which unfortunately culminated in a semi-final loss to eventual winners France.
Immediately after the tournament, Henry left his role at SkySports to concentrate on his coaching career.
November 2017 saw Henry named in UEFA’s team of the century which is “an all-time XI” made up from players who have featured most in their Team of the Year.
There were strong rumours in October 2018 that Henry was about to join Championship side Aston Villa after the dismissal of Steve Bruce, but he ruled himself out of the running and returned to his native France where he was appointed head coach of his former side AS Monaco.
Taking on a team in a transitional period having sold many of their star players including Fabinho, Mbappe and Benjamin Mendy, Henry’s Monaco side struggled in the league and he was sacked in January 2019 having managed just four wins in his 20 games in charge.
