While talking to reporters, Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has tipped former player Thierry Henry to a successful career in football management.
The Gunners legend recently closed curtains on a successful playing career at the age of 37 which took him to France, England, Spain, Italy and in North America. The World Cup and European Cup winner is now a pundit at Sky News but has already started working on his coaching badges and intends to return to the game as a manager in future.
And, although the transition is going to take some time, Wenger, who brought the Frenchman to London from Juventus, says that he has no doubts whatsoever about Henry’s potential as a great manager.
And although he does not know which capacity he will end up in, Wenger is confident that Henry’s insight on football and ability to know talent when he sees one gives him a great starting point to be a successful manager.
“He will end up at Arsenal one day. Coach? Manager? Director? I don’t know.
“He always showed an incredible insight in his judgement of players. He has a real ability to unearth talent.”
And although Henry has admitted that he would love to become the manager of Arsenal one day, at the same time he has also said that nothing can be certain in the world of football.
