Welcome back Thierry Henry! Arsenal legend joining Gunners coaching staff

Arsenal fans have long dreamed of the day when Arsene Wenger gets replaced by one of the greatest players in team history – Thierry Henry. The French scoring machine, who has been out of the game since finishing his career with the New York Red Bulls in 2014, has just taken a key first step towards getting that long-awaited top post at the Emirates.

According to Goal, Henry has officially been given the role of assistant manager to the Arsenal Under-18 side. Per the source, Henry has completed his UEFA A coaching license and is now able to manage teams that are either below the Premier League level or in the youth league.

Henry will reportedly continue his work as a pundit for Sky Sports while working with the Arsenal youth academy.

The four-time Premier League Golden Boot winner won two Premier League titles and three FA Cup titles under Arsene  Wenger, scoring a club record 226 goals in 369 total games for the Gunners.
