Thierry Henry just made a decision about his future that will shock all CF Montreal fans on Thursday. In recent days, he was linked to a possible Premier League transfer as Bournemouth saw him as a possibility. However, nothing was completed due to the Cherries’ other options. But the chances for Henry’s return to the UK don’t end there, there is also Celtic’s interest in signing him.
With this in mind, Henry decided to quit CF Montreal for good and used his family as the main reason. His family currently lives in the isles and he hasn’t seen them in several months due to the pandemic. Henry decided to write a statement where he explains his decision to step down as CF Montreal’s manager. Don’t be surprised if in the upcoming days, the French manager gets a proper offer from a club in the UK.
Henry’s statement in full.
“It is with a heavy heart that I’ve decided to take this decision,” said Henry in a statement. “The last year has been an extremely difficult one for me personally. Due to the worldwide pandemic, I was unable to see my children. Unfortunately due to the ongoing restrictions and the fact that we will have to relocate to the US again for several months will be no different. The separation is too much of a strain for me and my kids. Therefore, it is with much sadness that I must take the decision to return to London and leave CF Montreal.
“I would like to thank the fans, players and all the staff of this Club that have made me feel so welcome. I would also like to thank Kevin Gilmore, Olivier Renard and of course Joey and all of the Saputo family for giving me this wonderful opportunity. We had an impossible year together and to make the playoffs with this group of people is an experience that I will never forget. Thank you all for being there on this journey and I wish you all the success for the future.”
