Without a post since his departure from Montreal, the former Blues striker appealed to the historic Scottish club.
Thierry Henry’s coaching career did not start off on a high. Disembarking from AS Monaco after a few months at the head of the club, the French went to Montreal in MLS but left the Canadian club in February for personal reasons. However, Thierry Henry, once again a consultant for Sky Sports, has not given up on the idea of training at the highest level and he would not say no to a major challenge: to allow Celtic Glasgow to recover their lost title this season. for the benefit of the nemesis, the Rangers.
Henry: “Arsenal can beat anyone in PL”
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 is going to happen, I’m not saying it should come to me but anyway, I’m going to try to assess it. 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. 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 quickly as possible. I’m trying to learn. What I did as a player did more importance. What Steven Gerrand did to Rangers is just huge. What I love is that they gave him time to build a squad, to go find the players he wanted and make sure they were going to play“, added the former striker of the Blues.
Henry refocuses debate on racism in football
In recent days, Thierry Henry has decided to leave social networks, temporarily or at least until racism and defamatory comments are punished on these platforms. In an interview with CNN Sport, the top scorer in the history of the France team spoke about racism in football. And as often with the former Arsenal striker, he brings up thorny subjects straightforwardly.
Thierry Henry, a strong gesture in the face of racism
“There has recently been a debate about whether to kneel down or stand, but that is not the point. The point is, what are we going to do to make it better for everyone? Equality. I thought kneeling was a strong message and we all know where that came from (the death of American George Floyd following police violence), but the discussion evolved into : should we stand or kneel? “, explained Thierry Henry.
“But what about the real cause? The main point is what we do every day on this subject and what we still have to do. This is what we must especially not lose sight of. The volume considerable racism, intimidation and the resulting mental torture to individuals is too toxic to ignore. It is far too easy to create an account, use it to intimidate and harass inconsequentially, and remain anonymous. ‘until this changes, I will deactivate my accounts on all social platforms. I hope that will happen soon “, concluded the former Montreal coach.
