Henry wants to manage Arsenal

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has admitted he would love to become manager the Gunners when he retired from playing.


The club’s all-time top goalscorer revealed how much affection he feels for the Emirates Stadium outfit and revealed his dream, should he move into coaching, would be to emulate Arsene Wenger and take charge of the north Londoners.


Henry is currently playing in the MLS with New York Red Bulls, but enjoyed a fairy-tale return to his former club in January on loan, coming off the bench and scoring the winner against Leeds United – he also scored a late winner at Sunderland.


“I might. Now do you think I would be a good one? You can never tell. I actually don't know if that would be an option. I know I will be in the game for sure. Why not? Sure,” he said after being asked if he would go in to management during an interview with USA Today.


When Henry was asked where he would like to manage if he were actually to begin coaching, he gave a predictable reply.


“Everyone knows the love I have for Arsenal Football Club, so you know it goes without saying where. That's a dream,” admitted the Gunners favourite.


Henry is considered one of the greatest players to have played for Arsenal and his contribution to the club was commemorated with a statue at the beginning of this season.


Even though Henry has voiced a desire to one day lead the Gunners coaching staff, other ex-players who are currently coaching have also been linked with a return to work under Wenger.


Dennis Bergkamp and Tony Adams have both been tipped for roles, whereas current Under-18s boss Steve Bould has been mooted as a possible new assistant to Wenger when Pat Rice retires from the role this summer.
