Arsenal legend Thierry Henry surprise Barcelona candidate

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is being linked with a shock return to Europe.

France Football says Henry has emerged as a shock contender for the Barcelona managers' job if Quique Setien gets the sack.

The Montreal Impact boss, 42, spent three years at the Nou Camp as a player, but his only role managing in Europe was a failed spell at Monaco.

Henry is just one of the names being considered, with Mauricio Pochettino, Ronald Koeman and Xavi listed as other leading candidates.

Only Pochettino is out of work and available.
