Thierry Henry: France Are Bored & Confused By Coach Raymond Domenech


France are not doing too well in the World Cup qualifiers, and Henry knows why.

France’s record goal scorer, Thierry Henry has stunned coach Raymond Domenech, telling him exactly what the players think of his training methods.

The Barcelona star pulled no punches as he told the trainer that the squad is bored and confused by what they are being asked to do in practice sessions.

Instead of bottling it up and trying to play on, Henry opted to confront Domenech, laying everything on the line as he explained that he had never experienced anything like it.

France were held to a 1-1 draw by Romania at the weekend, leaving them adrift of Serbia in Group 7.

“Coach, we have something to tell you. I am speaking in the name of the squad. We are getting bored during your training sessions,’ Henry told Domenech, according to
Le Parisien.

“In 12 years with the French team, I have never been in such a situation.

“We do not know how to play, where to be on the pitch, how to organise. We do not know what to do. We have no style, no guidelines. It is not working.”
