Arsenal legend Henry tipped to be next Motherwell manager

Thierry Henry is being surprisingly linked with the Motherwell manager's job.

The Arsenal legend has emerged as a frontrunner for the Fir Park vacancy following the recent sacking of Ian Baraclough.

Some bookmakers in the UK have Henry rated as an 8-1 chance to take the reins in North Lanarkshire, joining the likes of Stuart McCall, Billy Davies, Terry Butcher, Mitchell van der Gaag and Simo Valakari on the candidates list.

However, former Gunners and Barcelona star Henry has a lucrative punditry contract at Sky Sports and is unlikely to step into a management role just yet.

Former Arsenal forward and current Sky pundit Charlie Nicholas says he cannot see the French legend becoming Motherwell manager anytime soon.

"It's an interesting one but I'm not sure I can really see Thierry leaving Sky for the Motherwell job," he said.
