FANS have loved the on-screen chemistry between Kate Abdo, Thierry Henry, Jamie Carragher and Micah Richards on CBS this season.
But Thierry Henry‘s rumoured next coaching move may see him swap the studio for the sidelines next term.
And L’Equipe report the young German manager wants Henry as his assistant next season – despite never having worked with him.
Henry has not coached since departing as Belgium‘s assistant boss following the World Cup.
He has instead spent his time working as a pundit on French television as well as working with the CBS team for Champions League coverage.
With L’Equipe reporting that talks between PSG and Nagelsmann are at an advanced stage, fans are gutted that the CBS punditry team is set to be broken up.
An Arsenal fan tweeted: “THIERRY NOOOO WE’RE FINALLY BACK IN THE UCL DON’T YOU DARE LEAVE CBS”
Another responded to the L’Equipe reports saying: “That means no more Thierry at CBS ????”
One fan added: “CBS Sports Golazo won’t be the same without Thierry.”

Fans have loved the laid back approach of CBS’ coverage this season which has given Abdo, Carragher, Henry and Richards the space to express themselves on air.
Ahead of Inter and AC’s Milan derby semi-final second leg, the pundits were left in stitches after a gaff from Abdo saw her say she was reporting for Fox instead of CBS.
Henry jokingly walked away as Abdo said: “I’m about to get fired.”
Fans also loved the moment earlier this season when Carragher had to bring Abdo a bottle of water when she fluffed her lines for a preview of a Champions League game.
Perhaps the highlight of the season came when Carragher left Milan’s Leao baffled with his Italian pronunciation – and Richards in stitches.
Some fans have already begun talk online about Henry’s CBS replacement, with one suggesting the recently retired Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the only man that can fill Henry’s boots.
One fan tweeted in response to Zlatan’s retirement: “CBS should go after him if Thierry Henry takes the job on the PSG coaching staff.”
