Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has reportedly held talks with African giants Egypt over the vacant head coach role.
After an underwhelming 2018 World Cup campaign, Egypt sacked Hector Cuper and are now looking for a new manager to start a new project.
And Henry is said to have reached out to Egyptian FA chief Hazem Emam to talk about the vacancy, after earning plaudits for his role as Roberto Martinez' assistant with semi-finalists Belgium.
Former Pahroes goalkeeper Nader El-Sayed said that he negotiated with Henry to take over Egypt.
The now player agent also said that he and Emam contacted Henry’s agent in London to negotiate a deal to make the former Barcelona star Cuper’s successor.
"We had a meeting with Thierry Henry’s agent in London, and Hazem Emam was present,’ El-Sayed told local radio station, as quoted by King Fut.
"Henry is waiting for the EFA's project for the team before deciding on the offer, apart from the economic aspect."
