Thierry Henry set for managerial return in America

The 1998 World Cup winner was sacked by Monaco in January after just 20 matches in charge.

Former Arsenal and Barcelona striker Thierry Henry is in talks with New York Red Bulls over the vacant manager's job, report Sky Sports News.

Henry took his first steps into management with Monaco in October 2018 but was relieved of his duties in January, having won just five of his 20 matches in charge.

Previously Roberto Martinez's assistant with the Belgium national side, the 41-year-old could return to the club where he finished his playing career, after being identified by the owners as a prime candidate to turn their fortunes around.

New York Red Bulls have won just one of their seven MLS games this season and are currently 11th.
