It has been denied by the New York Red Bulls that they have any plans of appointing the France legend and one of club’s ex players Thierry Henry as the head coach of the team.
And that triggered the speculations that Armas might lose his job and Henry who featured for the Red Bulls for a brief time during the fag end of his career might be given the responsibility to resurrect thing at the club, but it has been put to rest by the club which in a recent statement completely dismissed these speculations.
Henry of course has a great CV as a player, but his CV as a coach, at least at the start of his coaching career, isn’t entirely impressive as he failed to make any impact in his last coaching assignment which was in the French top tier with Monaco. He was handed the axe in just about 3 months there which was a little embarrassing for a man who holds such a high stature.
Meanwhile Chris Armas is starting to pull it back a little bit now for the Red Bulls in the last few weeks as they have drawn 3 and won 1 out of the last 4 games and have climbed up from no. 11 to no. 5 in the Eastern conference standings. So that, if anything, further reduces the possibility of Henry taking over at the Red Bull Arena in the near future.
