Arsenal legend Thierry Henry could be managed by a former Tottenham Hotspur boss next season, as Harry Redknapp is reportedly open to managing New York Red Bulls.
Goal.com are reporting that Redknapp is open to the idea of taking over the MLS franchise, who are skippered by the Gunners’ all time top scorer, as his next job after being sacked from his post at White Hart Lane.
The former Highbury and Emirates Stadium favourite has been in sparkling form recently for the Red Bulls, despite much uncertainty surrounding the future of current manager Hans Backe.
The report claims that the appointment of Jerome de Bontin as general manager at Red Bull Arena has left Backe’s future hanging in the balance, as he is in the final year of his contract and De Bontin may look elsewhere if Henry et al do not secure an MLS Cup victory this season.
It also claims that, while he is interested, Redknapp will avoid any public or formal statement of interest in the job until the situation surrounding Backe has been resolved.
