Thierry Henry 'Verbally Agrees' To Become Aston Villa Manager

Thierry Henry looks set to take over as manager of Aston Villa.

The 40-year-old entered the coaching realm by becoming Belgium's assistant manager under Roberto Martinez who snapped him up ahead of the World Cup.

Belgium reached the World Cup semi-final, eventually finishing in third place.

But it appears Henry is to leave his role within Belgium's backroom staff by returning to England.

According to reports from Star, Henry has 'verbally agreed' to leap into management by taking charge of Aston Villa.

Following his coaching gig at the World Cup, Henry harbours ambitions of a full-time management role.

Further reports also suggest a verbal agreement is in place for Henry to be Villa's new boss.

A few details need to be ironed out before Henry pens a contract at Villa Park. Such as agreeing a salary package and transfer budget for new recruits.

Steve Bruce is the current man at the helm though his position is clouded with uncertainty.

New majority shareholders Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens are hoping to appoint Henry so he can lead Villa's charge back to the Premier League.

The Championship welcomed a Premier League legend in the shape of Chelsea hero Frank Lampard who was named Derby County manager earlier in the summer.

Is Henry heading to England's second-tier, too?
