Arsenal legend Thierry Henry agrees to take Bordeaux job

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has agreed to take the Bordeaux job.

RMC Sport says Henry will take over at Bordeaux, who have picked up zero points from their opening two Ligue 1 fixtures.

Henry, who enjoyed a stellar club career with Arsenal and Barcelona, had been assistant coach for the Belgian national team.

The former France international - winner of the 1998 World Cup - replaces former Uruguay international Gus Poyet at the helm of the Ligue 1 side.

Bordeaux recently suspended Poyet after an extraordinary press conference rant in which he criticised the club's transfer policy.
