Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has reportedly turned down the France women’s job as he’s keen on taking charge of the USA. The USA are without a head coach after Gregg Berhalter’s contract expired following the World Cup Round of 16 knockout at the hands of Holland.

Berhalter was involved in a public fallout with player Giovanni Reyna’s parents in the aftermath of Qatar, which saw a domestic abuse incident from his teenage years at college be brought to light after the Borussia Dortmund player was indirectly named for almost being sent home from the winter tournament.

The ex-USA international remains in the running to continue with the talented team ahead of the 2026 home World Cup, which will also be held in Canada and Mexico. USA star Christian Pulisic spoke out on the Reyna-Berhalter saga and labelled it “childish” while also showing sympathy to his former head coach, who he says is “extremely unfortunate” to find himself in this position.

Berhalter may have to compete with Henry to regain his position, though. According to ESPN, Henry has turned down the vacant France women’s post, which became available after Corinne Diacre’s sacking, as he’d like to take over as USA boss.

The iconic Arsenal, Barcelona and France striker, 45, has been out of work since the end of 2022 following Roberto Martinez leaving his post as Belgium manager with No2 Henry following suit after a disastrous World Cup campaign saw the Red Devils be knocked out in the Group Stages. Henry is also still keen on a managerial career despite flopping at Monaco and Montreal Impact. The Frenchman lasted just a year and two years in the positions respectively.

Speaking on his desire to return to management, Henry said following Martinez’s Belgium departure: “Would I put my name in the hat? First and foremost it’s a tricky one to talk about here.Roberto Martinez went to coach Portugal and I’m not going to follow him.

“Being a number two is not something I would like to do anymore. I would love to have a crack at it again [management].

“What is the plan [for the US]? What is the philosophy? Just because you will be a host nation [at the 2026 World Cup] doesn’t automatically mean you will go far in the competition.”
