Nice coach Vieira backing Arsenal pal Henry for Bordeaux job

Nice coach Patrick Vieira is backing former Arsenal teammate Thierry Henry to take charge of Bordeaux.

Henry has been offered the Girondins post and will spend the weekend considering whether to accept.

Vieira said: "It would be an important blow for Bordeaux. It would be good for both him and the championship.

"I know him well and I think he has all the qualities to be successful, he has already had many experiences in his career and I think he has a lot to give as a first team coach."
