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.”
