The 42-years-old manager is currently coaching a MLS side.
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has admitted that he wants to return to the Premier League club in a coaching capacity at some point in the future.
The Frenchman played for the Arsenal between 1999 and 2007, winning six major trophies with the club, including two Premier League titles. He returned to the club for a brief loan spell in 2012.
Thierry Henry hit 228 goals in 376 matches across all competitions for the gunners. He also became their record scorer in the process.
Currently managing the MLS side Montreal Impact, Henry is preparing for a new season. However, he admits that he would not miss a chance to come back to his beloved club Arsenal as a manager.
“I do dream of managing Arsenal but I also dream of running up the court and doing a slam dunk. It doesn’t mean it’ll happen. But, yes, I’ll want to manage Arsenal until the day I die.”, said Thierry Henry to the Canal Plus.
The gunners reportedly interviewed Henry for the position of head coach before appointing Unai Emery two years ago. He had a successful spell as Roberto Martinez’s assistant for the Belgium national team.
However, he began his managerial career at Monaco but only lasted three months at the helm after recording a mere four victories from 20 games.
Henry said,“ It was already difficult before Arsene Wenger left. It was already difficult. I have learnt by coming onto this side of things (coaching), there are things that I heard, that you might hear something from someone you know or I know and we might know things.”
“But we don’t know anything, certainly not enough to speak about it, since then I have decided it is best not to get involved in these sorts of things.”
The Frenchman praised the level of intensity and competition in England’s top tier competition. Henry remarked, “The intensity, the rhythm that you have in the Premier League, it’s very high. You see, when you watch Liverpool, even just watching them, you get tired. They move so quickly.”
He said, “When you go to Manchester City before you have even looked up, there is pressing on you. If you control the ball, there are already three guys around you. The Premier League’s intensity is immense.”
