The Arsenal legend and former France international Thierry Henry may yet be able to continue coaching alongside his TV work.
According to The Sun, Henry was issued an ultimatum earlier this week by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger and was told to choose between working for Arsenal or his work with SkySports.
Henry decided to decline Wenger’s offer and left his post at Arsenal. The Sun claim that former Barcelona man has received offers from numerous Premier League clubs to work at youth level.
The Sun goes onto state that West Ham and Watford are both willing to allow Henry to both coach and work as a football pundit. Henry is understood to have set his sights on being a manager of a football club next year and is determined to gain his UEFA Pro licence.
Henry took to Twitter yesterday evening to explain his decision to Arsenal fans.
“I would like to thank Andries Jonker for offering me the chance to coach the U-18s at Arsenal, which I was honoured to accept,” Henry said
“However, I respect Arsène Wenger’s decision and I want to wish their manager Kwame Ampadu, the boys and everyone at the club all the best for the forthcoming season.”
Henry won two Premier League titles and three FA Cups during his time at Arsenal where he scored 228 goals in 376 appearances.
