THIERRY HENRY showed off some stunning dance moves at NBA icon Tony Parker’s pool party after reportedly interviewing for the France Under-21s manager job.

The Arsenal legend, 45, left his role as assistant to Roberto Martinez with Belgium following the World Cup in December.

Now he is allegedly the favourite for the vacant post with his country’s young guns, according to L’Equipe.

The former French forward, who has become a big hit working as a pundit on CBS, reportedly had an interview for the job on Monday.

He was one of four candidates for the position alongside Sabri Lamouchi, Jocelyn Gourvennec, and Julien Stephan.

But he is believed to be the “frontrunner” following talks with the French Ministry of Sports.

And his first tournament in the role would be the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

France‘s FA sacked Sylvain Ripoll in July after six years in charge of their U21s after they only reached the quarter-finals of the Euros.

Henry did it all during his iconic playing career but he has struggled to impress in the dug-out.

He has amassed a win percentage of just 26.5 across his two stints at Monaco in LIgue ! and Montreal Impact in America’s MLS.


The ace had two spells working under Martinez with Belgium, helping them to finish third at the 2018 World Cup, but is now keen to return to management.

However, while his managerial capabilities still have a lot to be desired, he has still not lost a step when it comes to his footwork.

A video has emerged on social media of Henry showing off his dance moves at Parker’s Hall of Fame pool party last night in San Antonio, Texas ahead of Saturday’s induction ceremony.

The 41-year-old Parker, a four-time NBA champion that played for the San Antonio Spurs for 17 years, has become one of compatriot Henry’s closest friends over the years.

And the pair were joined by other Spurs icons such David Robinson and Manu Ginobli and Parker’s friends and family ahead of the upcoming event at the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.

Parker shared some of the antics from the “pre-party” on social media, and Henry was front and centre as he performed a dance routine in swim shorts and a t-shirt in front of bikini-clad guests.
