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.
