Arsenal Legend, Henry Fears Taking Over From Wenger

Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry, has said he is not sure if he is ready to replace under-pressure boss Arsene Wenger at the club.

Wenger’s current contract runs out at the end of this season and he is believed to be in talks over a new deal, although nothing has been signed.

Henry, who is Arsenal’s all-time leading goalscorer, has emerged as a candidate to replace his compatriot if he decides to quit the club after over 20 years in charge.

But the 39-year-old Belgium assistant admits he has a lot to learn.

“It doesn’t depend on me, there are things to be respected, it’s my club of heart but I do not have any right-wings,” Henry told Canal +.

“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.

“I have not fixed any goal in the head, I will love it [be a coach] and I will do everything for it. But, right now, I’m in learning mode.”
