Loads of Arsenal fans have been rushing to congratulate their former player on his latest role although in truth, no one will be really surprised by this appointment. Henry was Roberto Martinez’s number two at Belgium over the course of the World Cup and now it looks like he’s chasing a career as the main man, starting back in his home country with Bordeaux.
The job will be a tough one he’ll have some difficult challenges he’ll need to overcome at the club, starting with regaining morale in the squad after the way Poyet left it. Then there’s the fact he’ll be going up against the likes of PSG and Monaco who are giants of European football. One game that the Gunners and Henry will both be looking forward to is the clash against Nice, who are also managed by a French Arsenal legend in Patrick Vieira.

Wow! Bordeaux vs Nice will be special.
