Arsenal legend Thierry Henry open to succeeding Wenger

Thierry Henry

Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry would admittedly jump at the opportunity to manage his former club.

The Frenchman was speaking at a recent interview with Sky Sports where he was asked whether he would be willing to replace 21-year Gunners chief Arsene Wenger, to which the ex-marksman responded, “Listen, I’m a competitor, you don’t back down from a challenge.”

Henry continued, “If I had listened to people who were talking about where I was going to be, I would not have been here. If you love a place and they ask – I repeat, they ask – for help, you are always going to say yes. What I am saying to you is again, we are talking about hypothetical thoughts.”

Many have questioned whether Henry requires the necessary experience to handle a club of Arsenal’s stature. The 40-year-old is, however, an ardent student of the game, who will undoubtedly endeavour to prove his doubters wrong should the opportunity present itself.
