Thierry Henry admitted that he signed for Arsenal partially because he liked the kit – but now wants to be the club’s manager.
Henry was being interviewed by Jonathan Ross for a show to be broadcast this weekend on ITV, and admitted that his “dream” is to take charge of the Gunners one day – and .
“I don’t know what Arsene wants to do and how long he wants to stay,” Henry said, adding that he will take steps to bolster his coaching CV – despite having recently signed a multi-million pound deal to become a pundit for Sky.
“I just want to be equipped… to be in the position, maybe one day to be a manager. “Being the manager of Arsenal FC would be a dream. I need to learn first. That is the most important thing.”
He explained that “London is home for me. It goes with my mentality and the way I see things,” and added that if the club were to approach him he would jump at the chance.
