Thierry Henry visited the Bournemouth training ground in 2018 to give the players some advice during Eddie Howe’s tenure at the club.
Three years on and the Frenchman is the favourite to take the vacant manger’s position on the south coast, once he leaves his post at Major League Soccer side Montreal.
Newcastle midfielder Ryan Fraser was at Bournemouth at the time of Henry’s visit and revealed what he told the players – providing a brief glimpse at what he may bring to the Cherries for the remainder of the season, should he get the manager’s job.
“We were in a meeting and were told we had a special guest coming in and then Thierry Henry walked in and we were like, ‘What?! Is this real?'” Fraser said in 2018.
