Ray Parlour backs Thierry Henry to become Arsenal manager
Ray Parlour feels Thierry Henry has the charisma to be a great manager
Ray Parlour has tipped Thierry Henry to take over the reins at Arsenal in the future.
The former France international called time on his New York Red Bulls career after four-and-a-half years in Major League Soccer.
He always had that charisma to be a manager
Henry, who is Arsenal’s record goal-scorer, has been linked with a move into coaching and a possible return to the north London club.
Former Gunners midfielder Parlour, who won two Premier League titles with Henry, reckons the 37-year-old will make a good manager.
“I think he will definitely get involved with Arsenal. I certainly believe, one day, if he really wants to be a manager, he will be manager of Arsenal,” Parlour told talkSPORT.
“He was such an intelligent player. Arsene Wenger used to have a meeting on a Monday with the players after a game and Thierry would always have his say. He would make some great points, not just about forwards, but about defending and how we defend as a team.
“He always had that charisma to be a manager. And look at his name around the world. People would want to play for him and he would attract big players.”
