Thierry Henry has agreed to become Bordeaux’s first-team manager, according to reports in France.

The Arsenal legend, currently working as assistant to Roberto Martinez in the Belgian national set-up, emerged as a candidate for the role after the club suspended Gus Poyet following a dispute over transfer policy.

Henry, 41, reportedly sought assurances that funds would be available if he did take on the challenge of managing Bordeaux and French broadcaster RMC now says he has agreed to take charge.

Bordeaux’s next game comes against Henry’s first professional club, Monaco, in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

He will face his former Arsenal team-mate Patrick Vieira on the touchline when Bordeaux play Nice on October 27.

Henry’s former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, recently said the club’s all-time record goalscorer was ready for his first senior managerial role.

"Yes, he wants to do it," Wenger told Corse Matin. "He is intelligent and he has the qualities.

"The existential question that we always ask ourselves is whether we are ready to sacrifice our life for the coaching profession."
