Arsène Wenger opens door for Thierry Henry Arsenal coaching role

Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger has opened the door to striker Thierry Henry to become a coach at the club in the future.

He had the following to say:

“It’s not impossible – I welcome people who have played for us to come back, but they need to do something. Not an honorary job. It has to be a job available and one that you get up in the morning and you have to do something. He has to learn his job first. I have seen so many people who have the qualities to be a manager but not survive their first job because they are not ready. When you are a football player, you think it’s so simple to be a manager. When you are a manager, you think it’s so complicated suddenly and, if you’re not prepared for that, you cannot survive.”
