Belgium manager Roberto Martinez told ESPN Thierry Henry’s success as a player with France can help his team deal with pressure in the World Cup semi-finals.

Thierry Henry has agreed to become coach of Ligue 1 club Bordeaux, according to reports in France.

Gus Poyet left his post as manager of Bordeaux following a reported clash with the board over the sale of forward Gaetan Laborde to Montpellier and, despite the Ligue 1 season being underway, the club are currently without a manager.

And both RMC and L’Equipe are reporting that Henry, who enjoyed a stellar club career with Arsenal, Barcelona and the France national team, will replace Poyet.

Henry had been a coach at Arsenal before becoming Roberto Martinez’s assistant coach with the Belgian national team and helped the Red Devils to a third-place finish at the World Cup.

Bordeaux face Gent in the first leg on their Europa League playoff on Thursday before welcoming Monaco in Ligue 1.
