Thierry Henry has been offered the Egypt national team head coaching position, according to player agent Nader El-Sayed.
Following the World Cup, Henry departed his role as a television pundit to focus on his coaching career before being linked with Aston Villa.
“We had a meeting with Thierry Henry’s agent in London, and [Egyptian FA board member] Hazem Emam was present," El-Sayed told local media.
"Henry is waiting [to hear about] the EFA's project for the team before deciding on the offer.
"[That is] apart from the economic aspect."
The 40-year-old would be replacing Hector Cuper, who was sacked after the Pharaohs lost all three of their matches in Russia.
“The Mexican coach was one of the candidates, however the EFA haven’t contacted me over him,” El-Sayed said.
“If EFA decides to contact with another agent for Aguirre I’ll have to respond."
