The departure of Thierry Henry from CF Montréal to Bournemouth seems imminent, as the English club of the Championship has already officially contacted that of Major League Soccer, to advance in the negotiations with the French strategist, who would return to England in his new role as technical director.
According to Kris Temple of the BBC, the English side asked the recently appointed CF Montréal for permission to negotiate with their coach and it appears that the deal is imminent and Thierry Henry would be announced as Bournemouth strategist in the next few days.
Henry would leave Montréal just days before the start of the preseason for the Canadian team, since the players are expected to report on March 1, to begin work for the 2021 MLS season, in which the French strategist would be one of the great absences, a campaign after making his arrival to American football.
The Frenchman would have his first experience as a technical director in English football and would arrive in Bournemouth, as a replacement for Jason Tindall who was fired from the Championship team a few weeks ago, for Jonathan Woodgate to take the interim position at The Cherries, which is currently sixth in the table of the second category of British football.
Thierry Henry was announced as coach of the then Montreal Impact in 2019 and after a season at the helm of the Canadian team, the French recorded a balance of 9 wins, 4 draws and 16 defeats in 29 games directed and he played the last edition of the playoffs in MLS, in addition to reaching the quarterfinals in the Concacaf Champions League.
The MLS-Championship movements
If your departure from CF Montréal to become a Bournemouth manager is confirmed, Thierry Henry would join the list of confirmed moves between MLS and the England Championship, as during the winter window, Jordan Morris and Paul Arriola were loaned to Swansea, while Daryl Dike was introduced as Barnsley’s new player.
