Gunners’ legend, Thierry Henry, has stated that he would love to coach Arsenal someday.

According to Soccernet, Arsenal’s all-time leading goal scorer with 228 goals who currently serves as assistant coach to Roberto Martinez with the Belgium national team dropped a subtle hint that he would “love” to coach Arsenal.

Wenger’s hold on the team has been called into question in recent months after losing four of their last five league matches and exiting the Champions League round of 16 at the hands of Bayern Munich.

The Frenchman is out of contract this summer, and it remains to be seen if he will sign an extension or leave the club.

“When I say that I want to train them, yes it’s the club in my heart, but that doesn’t mean that you have an automatic right to it,” Henry told Canal Plus.

“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 (being a coach) and I will do everything for it. But, right now, I’m in learning mode.”
