Bordeaux are looking for a new boss having suspended Gus Poyet, and Sky sources understand the position is one of a number being considered by the former Arsenal and Barcelona forward.

Here's a look at what he would be walking into at the Stade Matmut Atlantique - and the challenges he would face there.Bordeaux are historically one of France's most successful clubs. They won the most recent of their six Ligue 1 titles in 2008/09, but have not come anywhere close to those heights since. In fact, in the last nine seasons, they have not finished higher than fifth. There was a Coupe de France win in 2012/13, but otherwise there has been little to get excited about.Initially, Henry's task would simply be to turn Bordeaux's form around after consecutive defeats to Strasbourg and Toulouse, but in the longer term, the challenge would be to take them back towards the top of the division. There is no expectation that they will rival Paris Saint-Germain or Monaco immediately, but after three sixth-placed finishes in four years, could they aim higher under Henry?One of Henry's first challenges would be to lift morale among his players and alleviate the sense of crisis engulfing the club. Poyet's suspension came after a furious dispute with Bordeaux's owners over the club's transfer activity, with L'Equipe reporting that several members of the squad initially refused to train when informed of the Uruguayan's suspension last week.

Those players were reportedly talked around by the club's sporting director, Stephane Martin, but the back-to-back losses to Strasbourg and Toulouse suggest issues remain. It would be down to Henry to put the problems behind them and get the dressing room pulling in the same direction.
