henry Thierry Henry may be on his way out of the club.

Henry's struggles

Off The Ball this week spoke to French football expert, Lauren Juliens, who explained how things have gone wrong for Henry at club where he honed his craft.

"The heart of the problem for me is that he thinks he is above other people," he said.

"He still behaves like he is either a player or a pundit, but not really like a manager.

"For me, what he said to Kenny Lala is what you can say from one player to another in the heat of a game [...] but not when you are a manager, that doesn't work anymore.

"He has to change his attitude, the way he behaves, his body language is wrong.

"Sometimes he looks like he's one of the boys. Until he changes to manager mode, I think he's unclear as to where he's going!"
