Thierry Henry replies when asked if he will succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal
Thierry Henry says he is not sure if he would be ready to take over from Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager
Thierry Henry has insisted that he is not sure he’s ready to take over from Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager.
Wenger’s situation at Arsenal has been a source of relentless speculation in recent months following the Gunners’ disastrous slump in form of late.
The north London side have dropped down into sixth place in the Premier League table after a run of four defeats in five top flight games.
Wenger’s future has been a constant source of debate due to the fact that his current contract at The Emirates is due to expire in the summer.
Gunners legend Henry has been touted as a possible candidate to succeed Wenger at Arsenal.
However, the former France international issued a cagey response when asked about whether there was any truth to the rumours.
Henry told Canal+, as quoted by Metro: “It doesn’t depend on me, there are things to be respected, it’s my club of heart but I do not have any right-wings.
“Am I ready? I don’t know and nobody knows, but I also need to learn my job.
“I will not be a consultant all my life, but coaching is not my aim.
“I have not fixed any goal in the head, I will love it [being a coach] and I will do everything for it. But, right now, I’m in learning mode.”
