Henry in Wales' sights as next national team coach 

Henry in Wales' sights as next national team coach 

Legendary former Arsenal and France striker, Thierry Henry, is one of the top names being considered as coach of the Wales national team, following the sack of Rob Page. 

Henry studied for his coaching badges with the Football Association of Wales (FAW) and that connection is seen as standing him in good stead, according to a report monitored on the BBC.

Henry, 46, is currently in charge of the France U-21 side that will play at the 2024 Olympics in front of their fans. 

The former World Cup winner has managed Monaco and Montreal Impact in the Ligue and MLS respectively and was assistant coach in the Belgian national team to the 2018 World Cup, Euro 2020 and 2022 World Cup.

The FAW sacked Page last Friday, after three-and-a-half years in charge, following Wales’ failure to qualify for Euro 2024.

The governing body plans to take its time in appointing a successor, with no fixture for Wales until they begin their Nations League campaign at home against Turkey in September.
