Arsenal great Thierry Henry is unsure whether he is ready to replace under-fire boss Arsene Wenger as the Frenchman weighs up a career in management.
Henry – Arsenal’s all-time leading goalscorer – has emerged as a candidate should Wenger depart at season’s end but the 39-year-old Belgium assistant knows he has a lot to learn.
“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,” Henry told Canal +.
“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.
“Am I ready? I don’t know and nobody knows, but I also need to learn my job.”
“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.”
