Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that Gunner legend Thierry Henry will one day return to Arsenal, but in what capacity he does not know telling French sports newspaper L’Equipe: “He will be back at Arsenal one day. Coach? Manager? Director? I do not know.”

“I think he must first take a step back and think about what he really wants to do in his new life.

“To become a coach is to have a life of sacrifice. We choose this profession only after really deciding.

“What is certain is that Thierry will remain in the football universe. He will be a world-class pundit in the media.”

The 37-year-old Frenchman has just retired from football to take a job with Sky Sports as a football presenter, yet when asked if he could see himself managing Arsenal one day conceded that it would be his dream job.
