The legendary footballer Thierry Henry is stepping up on the ladder to be a ‘future tactician’ on the touchline and the day is not far behind when he will be taking the responsibility to drive a club forward. Even after losing on the Aston Villa job that was under the radar for him, Henry believes that his experience while being the assistant coach of Belgium national team with Roberto Martinez at the World Cup would play a huge part in chase for his dream. Belgium succeeded to reach the last four of the global tournament, defeating the likes of Japan and most importantly Brazil on their way to the stage but eventually bowed out to Henry’s nation and eventual winners France. But they left with a lot of optimism thanks to Henry who never felt shy to motivate the contributors with his genius mind. His praise was all ears after that.
Villa’s new chiefs Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens are long term admirers of Henry as a player but despite booking tickets for Arsenal games during his reign, they opted to stick with Steve Bruce for at least another season. So, Thierry is plunged into his own concerns to take on the heat of managerial prosperity. One of his several positive aspects is that he is a speaker of four main language- French, English, Spanish and Italian. This will help him get a job among these major nations of club football. Hence, Henry can use this factor immensely but it isn’t the only one that makes him special for sure. The former goal machine also quited his previous workplace as a Sky Sports football pundit, citing his wish to fulfil his ‘long term ambition to be a football manager’. So, he comes under some serious consideration for a managerial job and with Uefa Pro License at his disposal, it won’t be hard to imagine that.
Also, he may opt to stay as an assistant coach to Martinez with all the success of the Belgium team and lead the boys in the upcoming newly oriented tournament, known as the ‘UEFA Nation’s league’. Belgium, there, are tied with strong opponents like Switzerland and Iceland in league ‘A’ Group 2 and may require his guidance side by side with Martinez to flourish in the tournament. It is obvious that any nation that finished third in the World Cup would certainly look to carry on their impressive run and also keep hold of their stuff that helped her to do so. But in such a warmness to get a definite job, Henry may not be a part timer.
The 228 times shaker of the net may also try to appoint himself as a junior side coach of a great club like supervising the U18 squad of his club, Arsenal. That will be a perfect start to his role in future and boost his path to manage a senior side someday. It is also essential to build up from the lower segment in order to have a higher reach. With his vast amount of experience, he can do it or with his mighty desire he shall be sticking on getting a job of the higher post like one of those legends like Frank Lampard or Steven Gerrad, who are now in their second chapter of the football world.
Anyway, it is not to be denied that the ex Arsenal and Barcelona man who enjoyed a trophy laden carrier with both the clubs will up the steam to make this a grand one.
