Thierry Henry is working towards his coaching badges, and is being groomed to potentially play a major role at Arsenal in the future. He has taken another giant leap forward on the road to management, and was present on the bench for the U18s during our 2-0 win over Norwich.
The Arsenal legend started by coaching at the Hale End academy, imparting his wisdom on the U16s. He has now made the step up, and can be seen below with Marcus Agyei-Tabi on the sidelines at our recent U18 clash.

The player turned pundit is currently working for Sky Sports, but many will be hoping to see him play a bigger part at Arsenal down the line. Plenty of fans would love to see the Frenchman as our eventual manager, but it’s far too soon to tell whether he will make it to that level.

Club legends becoming managers can often be a risk, as you don’t want to taint their illustrious history with the side. It’s rare that they succeed as a manager at the clubs in which they are idolised, but if there’s one man that can do it it’s Thierry Henry.
