Although he has recently stated his desire to win MLS with New York Red Bulls, former Gunner Thierry Henry has been speaking about the club closest to his heart.
In an interview carried on France Football, Henry backed under pressure boss Arsene Wenger, and hinted he’d like to return to the club in a coaching/managerial role when his playing career is finished.
Speaking about his former boss and mentor, he said, “When you don’t win, people constantly question your work and your legitimacy. Everything you have achieved previously is forgotten.
“For me, these are things that are hard to hear, difficult to live. It’s sad, but it’s football. I know what Arsène Wenger has done for this club, in my eyes he will always be a great man.”
And with a new MLS season just weeks away, the club’s leading goalscorer of all time spoke about his desire to remain in the game once he’s retired as a player; his preferece being a return to Arsenal.
“All I know is I’d like to stay involved with football, and, I hope, at Arsenal. It’s the heart that speaks, it’s the team I support.
“If I can come back to the club, I’d love to do it, but it’s not my decision. It would be a wish, a desire more than something that can be made official, I have two more years to play here, then I’ll see.
“But I’d really love to be back with Arsenal.”
