On Monday, the Belgium football association plan a meeting, report HLN, and Thierry Henry’s situation is ‘undoubtedly’ on the agenda.
On October 5th, we covered claims from another Belgian newspaper, Het Nieuwsblad, that Aston Villa majority shareholders Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens had already initiated contact with Henry’s agent.
Villa weren’t said to be in a great rush, taking their time to make an appointment, and a source at the Belgian FA was quoted as saying: “We have not heard anything yet. We do not say anything about contracts and any clauses. In principle, everyone is under contract, but you never know what happens.”
HLN back up that talks have taken placed, and they add: ‘In the environment of Henry you can hear “that if he wants the job, it’s his”.’
No firm agreement has been been found yet according to Monday’s claims, and Henry hasn’t taken steps to inform his current employers of a desire to cancel his contract so he can manage Aston Villa.
Given it’s international break, Belgium will surely want answers from Henry as soon as possible.
