EPL: Thierry Henry opens up on coaching Arsenal, returning to Emirates

Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry, has revealed his plans to return to Emirates to coach the North London club.

Henry is Arsenal’s all-time record goalscorer with 228 goals.

The 43-year-old resigned as manager of Major League Soccer (MLS) side, CF Montreal, last month (February).

The Frenchman cited “family reasons” for his decision.

“I am an Arsenal fan. So if you are asking me if one day I would like to coach Arsenal, then yes. If you ask if one day I would like to be Arsenal’s kit man, then yes. If you ask if one day I would like to cut the grass at the Emirates Stadium, then yes,” Henry told FourFourTwo.

“But it’s a utopia, and I am far from that. If you ask me, am I dreaming, yes I am dreaming. But when you are not dreaming, you are awake, and there is a reality. Would I love to coach Arsenal? Yes. Would I love to go to Barcelona? Yes.

“I am on my learning curve, I want to do well for the team I am coaching, then time will tell. If you are not successful, you are not going to have those types of opportunities. I am just concentrating on what I can control, and the rest is a massive utopia.”

Henry’s coaching experience also includes a stint at French Ligue 1 side, AS Monaco and an assistant manager role with the Belgium national team.

The former striker won two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and reached the Champions League and UEFA Cup finals with Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal.

He also enjoyed success at Barcelona following his move from the Gunners in 2007.
