Ex-Gunners striker Thierry Henry admits that he would love to become Arsenal manager one day
Thierry Henry has admitted that he would love to become Arsenal manager one day.
The Gunners legend has made no secret of his desire to return to the north London club in some capacity once he playing days are over.
If it does happen eventually, one day, it is going to have to be after Arsene Wenger
And although Henry remained coy when quizzed about the subject out of respect for current boss Arsene Wenger, the 36-year-old Frenchman is hoping he will one day take charge at Emirates Stadium.
“The thing is, I have so much respect for Arsene, and if it does happen eventually, one day, it is going to have to be after him,” Henry said on the Graham Norton Show.
“I don’t actually want to talk about it right now because he is doing such a great job, but hopefully after him, yes.”
The New York Red Bulls striker, who is Arsenal’s record goal-scorer, also insisted that he made the right decision in quitting Arsenal back in 2007.
“It was hard and I cried – it wasn’t an easy thing to do,” he added. “But the team wasn’t going the way I wanted it to. I don’t regret leaving.”
