Thierry Henry On Barcelona's Shortlist To Replace Quique Setien

Thierry Henry On Barcelona's Shortlist To Replace Quique Setien

Thierry Henry is one of a number of managers being considered as Quique Setien's replacement, after Barcelona were embarrassed by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Setien's future as Barca manager was already under threat ahead of next season before Friday night, but the 8-2 defeat to Bayern sped up the process rather quicker than anyone expected.

The utter annihilation by the German side has led to a lot of questions about the Catalan giants but the easiest one to sort is the manager.

Exactly who could be next in line is uncertain but, according to Spanish outlet SPORT, Henry is on the shortlist along with Mauricio Pochettino, Ronald Koeman and Max Allegri.

Henry spent three seasons as a player at the Nou Camp, scoring 49 goals in 121 games in all competitions and winning the two La Liga titles and a Champions League, including a treble season.

However his managerial career has not gone as well as his playing career. He managed Monaco for just 20 games between October 2018 and January 2019, winning only four of them, before being sacked.

He moved to Montreal Impact in the MLS for this season and has won just one game from six games so far in Canada.

The fact the Frenchman is a former Barca man will make him a worthy candidate in the hierarchy's eyes, as he knows how the club want to play.
