Prospective Bordeaux owner DaGrosa: I met with Henry. But finances...

Prospective Bordeaux owner Joseph DaGrosa admits he's held talks with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

Henry, now Belgium assistant coach, turned down the Bordeaux manager's job last month.

DaGrosa revealed: "We had the opportunity to meet Thierry Henry in New York a few weeks ago. He impressed us a lot. He is remarkable and I have immense respect for him.

"Automatically, we thought about what would be the best for coaching the club. Thierry has immense potential. Sometimes, and in a friendly way, people do not agree. We did not agree financially. There was no other disagreement.

"Clearly, he likes the team, but we have not found a financial agreement."
