As pressure on Arsene Wenger mounts following yesterday’s 3-0 defeat in the Carabao Cup final, Thierry Henry admits that being manager of Arsenal one day would be a dream for him.
However, the club’s record all-time goalscorer didn’t expand greatly because of his close relationship with the manager and his current work as assistant to Roberto Martinez with the Belgian national team.
Speaking on Sky Sports after the game, Henry said, “I still have a job to do with Belgium, but let’s see what’s going to happen.
“It will be a dream for me, but I’m still with Belgium. Interested? Yes, who wouldn’t be?”
“But I can’t talk about that out of respect for the man that is in charge still and my job that I’m doing right now with Belgium.
“But who wouldn’t be interested?”
It has been rumoured for some time that Henry would be Josh Kroenke’s first choice to replace Wenger, and with the American set for a more hands-on role at the club in the near future there may be more to this than just speculation.
Son of Stan is currently in the UK analysing the way the club is run, and we’ve heard whispers that there could well be a boardroom shake-up this summer which sees him take a prominent position.
It seems more and more inevitable that this season will be the manager’s last at the club, but would Henry’s lack of experience be an issue?
