Thierry Henry has taken the decision to leave Sky Sports.

The Arsenal legend, who joined the broadcaster as a pundit in 2015, took to Twitter to explain his decision.

"Over the last four years I have had some extremely rewarding coaching experiences in football,” Henry wrote on Twitter.

“These experiences have only made me more determined to fulfil my long-term ambition to become a football manager.

"It is with sadness, therefore, that I have decided that I must leave Sky Sports to enable me to spend more time on the pitch and concentrate on my journey to achieving that goal."

Henry has shared punditry duties with being Belgium’s assistant manager, where he played a role in their World Cup campaign.

And having been a part of such a successful tournament - Belgium finished third - he clearly has a taste for life in the dugout.

Ian Wright's tweet

His tweets were met with messages of support and Ian Wright was among those to respond.

Wright’s message was full of class.

“My brother. Always so proud of you,” Wright wrote.

“All the best with the next step in your already incredible football journey @ThierryHenry. Much love ❤️”.


It’s unclear how Henry’s decision to quit Sky will impact his role with Belgium.

But he won’t be short of job offers when he does transition from coach to manager.

The 40-year-old was linked with the job at Arsenal before Unai Emery was announced as Arsene Wenger’s successor.


It was thought by many that the Gunners needed an experienced head to reverse their slide, and that Henry was a choice influenced more by the heart than the head.

That makes sense, and nobody is complaining about Emery’s appointment.

Perhaps some time in the future, Henry will be ready to take up the reigns at the club where is considered a king.

Rest assured, he can count on Wright’s support if that ever does happen.
