After PSG’s defeat at Lens on Sunday (3-1), as part of the 17th day of Ligue 1, Christophe Galtier slipped a slightly amused word at Thierry Henry. A consultant for Prime Video, the former Arsenal forward has been named for the position of coach of Belgium.
Thierry Henry future coach for Belgium? The news is gaining momentum after the statements of Romelu Lukaku. “For me, Henry is the next coach for Belgium,” the Inter forward said in an interview with Sky Sport Italia. There is no doubt about that. I say it openly: he will be the next coach. He has the respect of all the players, he has won everything. He knows the job of coaching, he knows what we have to do to get there. He knows the team, the league, the staff.”
“Maybe a big challenge for our national Titi”
Something to fuel the rumours. And Christophe Galtier had fun. After responding to Prime Video’s response to PSG’s defeat on the Lens lawn (3-1) for the 17th day of Ligue 1, the Parisian technician slipped a slightly amused word to Thierry Henry.
“And then maybe a big challenge for our national Titi (smile), loose Galtier in front of a hilarious Thierry Henry. That’s what I read huh!” It is understood that the former French team striker avoided the remark and pretended to look behind him. “We’ll leave him alone,” Galtier concluded as he left. Relaunched by the presenter, Thierry Henry has just clarified: “My phone is on silent!”
The Red Devils coaching position has been vacant since the announcement of the departure of Roberto Martinez, to whom Thierry Henry was an assistant after leading the Belgian forwards. A postponement that followed the early elimination of Belgium from the pools at the 2022 World Cup.
