Thierry Henry London, Sep 8 (ANI): French striker Thierry Henry has attacked national coach Raymond Domenech, and said that Les Bleus are bored in training and are lost on the pitch with “no style or guidelines”.

Henry, who is France’s record goal scorer with 49 goals in 112 appearances, launched his attack at the national team’s training camp last Friday.

“Coach, we have something to tell you, I am speaking in the name of the squad. We are getting bored during your training sessions. In 12 years with the French team, I have never been in such a situation,” he told the Le Parisien newspaper.

“We do not know how to play, where to be on the pitch, how to organise. We do not know what to do. We have no style, no guidelines. It is not working,” he added.

The French football federation declined to comment on the matter, The Mirror reported.

Coming from Henry, the comments are a serious blow to the authority of Domenech, who has enjoyed the full support of the French Football Federation despite tumbling out of the Euro2008 at the group stage. (ANI)
