Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has turned down the chance to manage France’s women’s national team.
Reports indicate that the former Belgium national team assistant coach is keen on taking over the USA national team USMNT having previously played in the country with New York Red Bulls towards the end of his career before briefly managing CF Montreal in 2020.

French federation (FFF) committee member Jean-Michel Aulas said Henry had turned down the possibility of replacing Corrine Diacre. “I personally asked [Henry] the question, but the response was not positive,” he told Le Figaro.
“He was obviously very flattered that he was asked. We did it because we were told he might be interested. But it will not be Thierry Henry. I think he is moving on to other projects.”
Henry is however keen to return to the USA to replace Berhalter as head coach. Berhalter left the role following the nation’s exit at the World Cup. However, US Soccer said this week that he remained a candidate to return to the position after an investigation into allegations of domestic violence concluded.
