France and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is uncertain whether he is prepared to replace under-fire Gunner’s boss Arsene Wenger as the Frenchman weighs up a professional career in coaching.
Henry – Arsenal’s untouched leading goalscorer – has risen as a hopeful candidate should Wenger leave at the end of the season, yet the 39-year-old Belgium assistant coach knows he has a long way to go.
Wenger is out of contract agreement toward the finish of the season and his future is a long way from sure in the midst of increasing threats and pressure from fans with Arsenal struggling to keep their feet in the top four and face a threatening battle for a chance in Champions League nest season
Losing four of their previous five league matches to drop down to 6th in the table, and endured an embarrassing 10-2 total thrashing to Bayern Munich in the Champions League round of 16.
Henry Speaking to Canal +: “It doesn’t depend on me, there are things to be respected, it’s my club of heart but I do not have any right-wings,”
“My name is quoted to succeed Wenger, I hear that. But it’s hard for me to talk about it I have a lot of respect for everything the coach has done.
“I will not be a consultant all my life, but coaching is not my aim,” added Henry, who works alongside Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez.
“I have not fixed any goal in the head, I will love it [be a coach] and I will do everything for it. But, right now, I’m in learning mode.”
