Ex French Mid-Fielder, Thierry Henry In Waiting To Succeed Wenger?Latest News, Sports Friday, February 20th, 2015
By Adesye Adebiyi – Ex-Arsenal Captain, Thierry Henry has returned to take a coaching career in his former club, with target to join the club’s backroom staff to focus on the development of the young Gunners.
The former French mid fielder was Arsenal’s all-time leading scorer, having kicked into the net 228 times in 376 appearances, for the North London club side.
However, a player from the gunners under 15s side, Josh Benson Thursday afternoon took to twitter, with excitement to reveal that he and his team mates had been coached by the French man.
Thierry henry joined the English side from Juventus with a fee of 11 million Euros and lifted two premier league titles and was also part of the team regarded as the ‘’invincible’’ who managed to go unbeaten in the entire 2003/2004 season.
Henry at the peak of his career, moved to the Spanish giant side, Barcelona in 2007 where he won another Spanish La Liga title and lifted the most coveted trophy in football, the UEFA champion’s league trophy. He also moved to the major league soccer outfit New York Red bulls and later reunited with the Gunners again in 2012 on a loan spell during the major league soccer close season.
The world cup winner announced his retirement from football in 2014 and has been working as a television pundit for Sky sports. It is therefore not surprising that the French man has been a brand and a trademark that will succeed Arsenal Wenger as the Manager, when he finally quits, due to the entrenched association and relationship with the Arsenal Football club and its board.
