Arsenal legend makes prediction about the club’s future manager

Robert Pires says Thierry Henry could one day end up managing Arsenal

Robert Pires believes that Thierry Henry could end up as Arsenal manager once Arsene Wenger has left the club.

There has been mounting speculation about Wenger’s future at the north London club, with the Frenchman currently in the final year of his contract with the Gunners.

Arsenal have made a strong start to the Premier League season and currently sit in third place in the table and just two points behind leaders Manchester City after seven games.

There is bound to be plenty of speculation about who the next Gunners boss will be in the coming weeks and months.

Henry has recently taken up a coaching role with the Belgian national team with a view to gaining some more first-team experience.

And former Arsenal midfielder Pires is backing Henry to one day take over at The Emirates.

Speaking in an interview with The Daily Mirror, Pires said: “I’m very happy for Thierry Henry because he wants to be a manager. When, I don’t know but I think soon.”

Asked whether this could be Arsenal, he replied: “Maybe one day, of course. Why not? Thierry Henry and Arsenal have a good relationship.”
