Asked in a podcast about a possible interest of Celtic (Scotland), Thierry Henry said he was “available” to soon find a coaching position. Steven Gerrard’s success at the Rangers inspires the French technician, who wants to continue learning.
Free from any contract since the end of February and his departure from Montreal, Thierry Henry returned to London to be closer to his family, who still live in the heart of the English capital. If he left the North American continent and the MLS, the French technician remains nonetheless motivated to quickly find a sidelines.
A prestigious position has been vacant for a few weeks: that of Celtic, since the dismissal of Neil Lennon. At issue: the historic rival Glasgow Rangers won the championship this year, after a 9-year supremacy of Celtic. To succeed Lennon, the Scottish press mentioned the name of Thierry Henry but also that of Lucien Favre.
“I am available, I want to be a coach”
Asked by Robbie Fowler during a podcast hosted by the former Liverpool striker, Thierry Henry did not hide his possible interest in Celtic. “In all humility, whatever will happen, I’m not saying it should come to me but anyway I’ll try to assess it, replied the top scorer in the history of the France team, on the possibility of becoming Celtic’s coach. I don’t know what’s going on there, it’s a club that I respect a lot, like a lot of people in the world, but that I don’t know not. I’m just trying to learn. I’m available. I don’t know what’s going to happen to me but I want to be a coach for sure. I want to get back to the game as fast as possible. I try to learn. It doesn’t matter what I’ve ever done as a player. “
Steven Gerrand was crowned with the Rangers after three seasons. A success which in any case inspires Thierry Henry a lot and which perhaps motivates him to settle in Scotland. “What Steven Gerrand did to Rangers is just huge. What I love is that they gave him the time to build a squad, go out and find the players he wanted and make sure. that they were going to play, “said Henry of the former Liverpool midfielder’s success.
