No one wants Big Sam. Henry is a French Footballing legend (sort of) So you can understand why they took the risk.
I think it’s fine to appoint up and coming managers and coaches who have proven they can coach at some level within the system, I think these glamour player to manager moves rarely work.

The issue with Henry for me is that he displays few of the personality traits of a good manager. He strikes me as slightly aloof (ok, he is French) and doesn’t excuse the drive or focus you’d expect in a manager. Coach, maybe, manager no.

He may prove otherwise, but I doubt he will ever make it as a top manager.
