Gunners legend Thierry Henry’s first journey as a premier striker was extremely successful, and now he is set to begin his new journey in management. He has been offered the chance to start his coaching career at Arsenal. Henry who retired from football before Christmas is now currently working as a pundit with Sky Sports.
He made 254 appearances when he was a member of the club from 1999-2007. He scored 174 goals in his eight years and was part of “The Invincibles” squad during the 2003-04 EPL season. Henry is working towards securing his UEFA 'A' and 'B' coaching qualifications - and his experience with Arsenal's youth teams will provide the 37-year-old with valuable hands-on training.
He will be working at the club’s famed Hale End academy, where he will work with talents right up to the age of 16 to gain a more hands-on experience. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has already tipped Henry for a future in coaching - as long as he can adjust to the pressures and criticism involved.
It is believed or rather speculated that he may in the future become Arsenal’s coach given his close attachment to the club.
