Here is the salary that Thierry Henry will earn as coach of the French U21 team

New sporting adventure for Thierry Henry. After coaching AS Monaco between 2018 and 2019, then Montreal Impact in 2020, the second top scorer in the history of the French team takes charge of the Bleuets. The French Football Federation this Monday, August 21, appointed the former Arsenal striker as head of the French Espoirs team which will compete in the Paris Olympic Games next year. The flagship commentator of Prime Video and CBS Sports succeeds Sylvain Ripoll, who led the selection between May 2017 and July 31, 2023, date on which he was fired.

With this new position, Thierry Henry adds a new line to his coaching CV and hopes to lead his team to the highest level in the world, after two first mixed experiences as a coach. To secure the services of the 46-year-old Frenchman, the FFF apparently did not need to break the bank. According to the sources of The Teamwhich devoted an entire article to the arrival of Thierry Henry in the France Espoirs team, the original Ile-de-France native will receive a salary equivalent to that of his predecessor Sylvain Ripoll, or around 40,000 euros gross per month.

The sports daily adds, however, that bonuses could be added in the event of good performance. “His two-year contract could still be accompanied by fairly significant profit-sharing on results, for the 2024 Olympics as well as for the Euro the following year. This should rather suit him, since according to those involved in the negotiations, Henry ‘showed very marked ambition, in terms of play and performance’.”
