Ever since retiring from his playing career, Thierry Henry has taken many ventures. Both as a pundit and as a manager, the Arsenal legend has had mixed fortune. However, despite his managerial failings, he still has one goal in mind; to return to the Emirates Stadium.

To be frank, not many players love a club as much as Henry loves Arsenal. Although this was unpopular to believe a few seasons ago, it’s true. He is the club’s biggest legend and he feels like he owes a lot to the Gunners and particularly Arsene Wenger.

He’ll feel proud to watch over Mikel Arteta and his work so far with the Gunners, but there is still work to be done. Arsenal are not a midtable side, they should be fighting for silverware with the players available to them; Thierry knows this.

According to a report from FourFourTwo, Henry has been very vocal and honest about his potential management of Arsenal. The Frenchman supposedly would love to take over from Mikel Arteta, but he is still on a “learning curve” and recognises he must succeed before taking the vacancy.

In many ways, this is honourable from Thierry. If we take the Frank Lampard at Chelsea case for example, some legends just aren’t ready to manage at the top level yet and must gain more experience. If Thierry is to take charge at Arsenal, he wants to make his tenure another special one.

As for the time being, Arteta is the best option. He too wants the best for the club and is working as best he can with the players available to him. At the end of the day, he needs backing from the board, the backing of which he has certainly warranted over the last couple of seasons.
