Thierry Henry in line to become next Wales Manager

Wales have marked Belgium assistant manager Thierry Henry as a potential replacement for Chris Coleman, who has joined Sunderland.

According to the Mirror, the British outlet reported that the Football Association of Wales have included the Arsenal legend on their shortlist as they are on the hunt for a new head coach.

The Frenchman has spoken of his intention to eventually move into management, despite having only appointed as No. 2 to Belgium manager Roberto Martinez last year.

However, Henry is expected to face strong competition with Ryan Giggs and Craig Bellamy for the Wales managerial job.

According to reports, there’s a strict criteria from FAW that must be met by any coach they appoint, which includes the successful completion of the FAW’s pro-license scheme.

Henry passed the course last year, while the Manchester United legend and Bellamy are also graduates. Wales also want to ensure highly-regarded coach Osian Roberts keeps his post and that any new manager works closely with him.

Henry reported formed a close bond with Roberts when the Frenchman did his studies and passed with ease. The pair have remained in contact, which could give Henry an advantage should the Frenchman be interested in taking the vacant post. Only time will tell if the Frenchman will be willing to leave his role at Belgium for the Wales job.

Following Coleman’s exit after last week’s friendly draw against Panama, Wales are next in action in March next year, when they will play in the China Cup.

Thierry Henry celebrating his goal against Leeds

When TH12 scored the goal there was no doubts in my head his passion the look on his face the body language said it all, beautiful simply beautiful! To be honest I had a tear in my eye and again when the final whistle blew it was breath taking to be a part of something so special. His love and passion for this club is permanent as much as his class!

I agree Leeds gave us a good game we seem to have run out of ideas but I will never forget what Thierry has done tonight. Truly magnificent stuff, absolute magic!
