Henry: I still want to be Arsenal manager

Thierry Henry admits he still has his sights set on becoming Arsenal manager.

The Gunners’ all-time record goalscorer was set to coach the club’s Under-18s side this season but has been forced to step aside after Arsene Wenger wanted him to quit his role as a pundit for Sky Sports.

Henry completed his UEFA A license earlier this year but the former France international insists his is still far from taking his first steps into management.

“I’d be lying if I told you being manager wasn’t a wish that I have because I love Arsenal,” Henry told The Sun. “The game is my passion and always will be. I would like to manage — but I am far from it.

“Although I am able to manage any team now, I would still like to pass my Uefa Pro Licence, which I’m working on to give me a better all-round knowledge.

“Before you can think of becoming a first-team coach you need to have experience. That is what I’m trying to get and to complete the necessary coaching hours that are needed.

“There is a massive difference between a wish and doing it. I felt I could add something to the kids and also gain valuable experience myself
