Both Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry are considered “frontrunners” to become the next manager of the United States national team.


Former Arsenal greats Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira have been mentioned as possible candidates to lead the United States national team.

Henry, now 45, and Vieira, then 46, played together for Arsenal under Arsene Wenger and won two Premier League titles between 2002 and 2004.


During one of Arsenal’s golden eras, they also won two FA Cups.

Henry has recently taken the head coaching positions at Monaco and Montreal Impact.

He was Roberto Martinez’s backup for the Belgium national team on two separate occasions.

In the three months since he left after the World Cup, Henry has been unable to find work.

Vieira, meanwhile, was let go by Crystal Palace on Friday after a 12-game winless streak.

After leading Selhurst Park for 18 months, the Frenchman is now jobless and looking for a new position.

Vieira coached the Manchester City Elite Development Squad, New York City FC, and Nice before joining the staff at Crystal Palace.

Goal reports that the two former Arsenal greats are both being considered for the United States job.


Since Gregg Berhalter resigned after leading the United States to the round of 16 at the World Cup in Qatar, the team has been without a head coach.

U.S. legend Alexi Lalas has also endorsed the idea of Vieira being hired.

I think Patrick Vieira is worth a chat,” he said on Twitter.

To paraphrase one Twitter user: “But I think it’s useless to talk about potential #USMNT coaching candidates until a men’s GM (who will pick the next coach) is hired.”
