Former French international Thierry Henry has agreed to become Bordeaux’s new coach, RMC Sport reported Wednesday, citing sources close to the Ligue 1 club.

Henry, who had a brilliant career with clubs such as Arsenal and Barcelona, was an assistant coach to the Belgian national team in the last World Cup.

The former striker will replace Gustavo Poyet at the helm of the French first division team. The Uruguayan had been suspended by the club last week for his criticism of the transfer of striker Gaetan Laborde to Montpellier.

Henry, France’s historic goalscorer, will join Patrick Vieira as the last member of the 1998 World Cup winning team to reach the top flight of French football after agreeing to his arrival in Nice.

Bordeaux has won the French league six times, the last time in 2009 under the direction of another world champion in 1998: Laurent Blanc.
