Thierry Henry has denied reports that he was in the running to take over at Aston Villa or Egypt as he prepares for life as a manager.

The former Arsenal and France forward left his role as a pundit for Sky Sports last month and announced that he would like to pursue a career as a coach.

Since then he has been linked to several roles, but in two posts on Twitter he said that he is yet to hold discussions regarding any job.

"Since announcing my decision to leave my full time role in broadcasting to pursue my ambition of becoming a manager, I have subsequently been linked with a number of positions both domestically and internationally," he wrote.

"Contrary to misleading reports people may have read... at this moment neither myself nor my advisers have held any discussions with any club or national association. My intention has always been to be patient and I will take my decision in good time."

Henry assisted Belgium coach Roberto Martinez during the World Cup as they reached the semifinals before losing to eventual winners France.
