Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has had his say on club legend Thierry Henry, and the possibilities of him becoming a manager.
The longest serving gaffer in the English Premier League warns his protege that he must undergo a ‘mental and psychological transformation’ before becoming a manager.
Thiery Henry is currently working alongside the club’s U18s as he begins his journey into coaching and works towards gaining his adges.
The ex-striker, who hit 226 goals in 369 appearances during his eight seasons in north London, has long been tipped as a candidate to take his place in the Emirates dugout later in his career.
Wenger says he is pleased to see his protege on the training pitch, but warns he must undergo a ‘mental and psychological transformation’ before becoming a manager.
“He will discover what the job is about and you have to go through that process if you want to one day manage a football team,” Wenger told Arsenal’s official website.
“The job of a player is centred on you and the job of a coach is centred on others. You find you just focus on others and how you can help them.
“It demands a psychological and mental transformation that is not always easy. It also demands how to get what you know is available in other people in the most simplistic way.”
