Since the start of the season, Thierry Henry was used to the lawns where he intervened on Amazon Prime Video, especially before and after the match of L1 matches. But his role as a consultant will take on a little more importance. This Friday evening, the former Arsenal scorer will be a little higher in the stands of the Parc des Princes to comment on PSG -Angers. He will be alongside Smaïl Bouabdellah who formed a duo, until then with Benoit Cheyrou or Mathieu Bodmer. This desire to expand his register of consultant was a will on the part of Henry, who also speaks on Champions League nights on the American channel CBS while keeping a link with coaching as Roberto Martinez's assistant with the selection of Belgium.
A few weeks ago, during PSG - Lyon, he spoke exclusively on his new role as a consultant in our columns. “It’s just fun. They put us in very good conditions. I'm lucky to be with good guys, Ben (Cheyrou), Thibault (Le Rol), Smaïl (Bouabdellah). We are a good team and it also allows me to reconnect with the French public and the L1. Everywhere, in the stadiums, we receive a really nice welcome. There are beautiful atmospheres, beautiful lawns, and even if we can no longer play, of course, we find good sensations. Apart from my brief stint as a trainer in Monaco, it's been a long time since I left France, since I lost this closeness to L1 and the public. This role of consultant at Amazon allows me to redo my journey and relive certain emotions. "
"He prepares his matches thoroughly, he really amazes us with his knowledge of L1"
Henry, who was quick to distinguish himself by the relevance of his analyzes and the depth of his interviews, takes his role as a consultant very seriously.
"He thoroughly prepares his matches, he really amazes us with his knowledge of L1", explained Smaïl Bouabdellah.
“I find it normal to work to prepare for the matches.
I've always done it like that and I like it, ”added Henry, who added that he did not feel the need to stop training on a daily basis.
“I have Belgium, Amazon, I'm fine at the moment.
Honestly, I don't feel any lack.
We will see what the future holds for me, I am quietly awaiting the projects that will be offered to me in the future.
