Henry and Arsenal coach

Thierry Henry could leave Arsenal for the third time in his career following a row with Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners’ record goal-scorer has been working as a youth coach at the club while doing his badges, but his role as a pundit for Sky Sports has caused friction between him and Wenger.

Henry criticised Olivier Giroud last season, saying Arsenal would struggle to win the Premier League while he remained their main striker.

Just two months earlier – after March’s defeat at home Swansea – he had claimed in one of his newspaper columns he had “never heard Arsenal supporters so angry”.


Henry – who is not paid by Arsenal for his coaching work – is currently doing his Pro Licence badge, the final qualification UEFA offer, and may need to find a new club to complete it.

The former striker’s exit would surely prove unpopular with fans who have already seen former captains Mikel Arteta and Patrick Vieira move to Manchester City to take up coaching roles.
