Thierry Henry reportedly wanted by Aston Villa as manager, Arsenal fans react

Thierry Henry is loved by the Arsenal fanbase, but some would not be hugely supportive if he ended up taking over at Aston Villa.

On Saturday, The Mirror reported that the Championship outfit are considering swooping for Henry as a replacement for Steve Bruce.

At the moment, no managerial shifts have been made, but a recent financial injection may cause a change.

Egyptian billionaire Nassef Sawiris has sought to end Villa’s woes in the boardroom by taking a controlling stake from chairman Tony Xia.

The Mirror claims that Henry could be a potential candidate to replace Bruce after he quit his punditry duties with Sky Sports to embark on a career in management.

The Frenchman, who is Arsenal’s leading goalscorer, caught the bug while assisting Roberto Martinez during Belgium’s World Cup campaign in Russia.

While Arsenal fans are keen for their club legend to take on his first management job, some have concerns about Villa.
