During Thierry Henry’s 8 year long spell at Arsenal, the Frenchman is considered to be one of the greatest players that the Premier League club has ever had. His influence for Arsenal is so great that he is often called back to the team despite being 36 years old.
The French striker managed to become Arsenal’s top goal-scorer for almost every season of his tenure over there and the former Barcelona player is the all-time leading scorer for the Premier League club having scored 228 goals in all competitions.
The man even has a statue which was built just to remember the time he spent at Arsenal some years ago and now playing for New York Red Bulls he makes frequent visits to his former club and recently stated his desire on one day becoming a coach for Arsenal.
In the near future Henry wants to lead Arsenal to success but this time around out of the pitch as has a desire on continue being involved and helping his former club on achieving success but the French forward stated that Arsene Wenger is doing a great job and his chance on becoming the next coach of Arsenal will only arrive after Wenger concludes his coaching spell with the club.
He said: "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. I don’t actually want to talk about it right now because he is doing such a great job, but hopefully after him, yes.”
Henry still has 1 year left with the New York Red Bulls and after that time concludes, he has already stated on seeing what options he has either that might be extending his career as a player or start taking up a more tactical role as a coach.
