Thierry Henry lined up to be Elmohamady’s next manager – Reports
Reports in England have emerged that Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is set to take over Aston Villa’s vacant managerial position following the departure of Steve Bruce.
The 41-year-old is now the leading candidate for the job, as fans await for him to embark on a similar path like Steven Gerrard with Rangers and Frank Lampard at Derby County.
There is a strong Egyptian connection with Aston Villa, who have Egypt national team captain Ahmed Elmohamady among their ranks. In addition, tycoon Nassef Sawiris had invested in the club a few weeks ago as the Villians were troubled with debt.
According to Skysports, Thierry Henry faces competition from Steven Gerrard, as Villa look keen on luring the Liverpool legend from Rangers.
Other candidates include Jose Mourinho’s former assistant Rui Faria, & Brentford’s head coach Dean Smith, according to the Telegraph.
Thierry Henry is currently the second assistant in Belgium’s staff, head by Roberto Martinez. They managed to achieve the Red Devils’ best-ever FIFA World Cup finish three months ago as the team won Bronze in Russia after beating England.
