TORONTO, Canada—One of Major League Soccer’s most iconic names could be on his way out.
Multiple reports have confirmed that CF Montreal head coach Thierry Henry has indeed interviewed for manager vacancy at A.F.C. Bournemouth, with The UK’s Daily Mirror reporting that the French legend is set to accept the role.
According to Kristian Jack, however, nothing is official as yet between Henry and the Championship side.
Regarding the strong rumours of Thierry Henry to Bournemouth I can tell you that nothing official has been done at Montreal Impact yet. Players have not been told anything either. Whatsapp chat groups amongst them are of course busy with wonder. Developing story.— Kristian Jack (@KristianJack) February 17, 2021
“Regarding the strong rumours of Thierry Henry to Bournemouth, I can tell you that nothing official has been done at Montreal Impact yet,” KJ wrote in a tweet. “Players have not been told anything either. Whatsapp chat groups amongst them are of course busy with wonder. Developing story.”
The Athletic’s Sam Stejskal has added that a Montreal source told him that they wouldn’t be ‘at all surprised’ if Henry ends up with Bournemouth.
If he does indeed depart, Henry’s tenure in Montreal was short-lived. The World Cup winner has been with Montreal since fall of 2019, posting a 9-4-16 overall record in MLS. Before Montreal, Henry was in charge of Monaco for 20 matches during the 2018-2019 season.
We’ll continue to update you on this developing story, but I think the real story here is ... is KJ in the CF Montreal Whatsapp groups!?
