Thierry Henry says that he doesn’t know if he is ready to take over from Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager.
Speaking to Canal Plus, Wenger insisted that he is still learning as a coach, and insists that needs to happen before he becomes a manager of a club like Arsenal.
However, Henry at least hinted that he would love to take charge one day, calling Arsenal “my club of heart”. I think we all realised he felt that way.
“It doesn’t depend on me, there are things to be respected, it’s my club of heart,” he told Canal Plus.
“My name is quoted to succeed Wenger, I hear that. But it’s hard for me to talk about it I have a lot of respect for everything the coach has done.
“Am I ready? I don’t know and nobody knows, but I also need to learn my job. Right now, I’m in learning mode.”
Henry is currently assistant manager to Roberto Martinez at Belgium, fulfilling that role alongside his work for Sky Sports. Expect Arsenal to concede plenty of goals.
Earlier this month, the Daily Telegraph reported that Josh Kroenke (son of Stan) wanted Henry to be Arsenal’s next manager.
