Arsenal club-record goalscorer Thierry Henry interested in manager Arsene Wenger's job

Posted: 26 February 2018 Time: 11:00

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is 'dreaming' of managing the Premier League side one day after declaring interest in the role that's been filled by Arsene Wenger for the past two decades.

Sections of the Emirates Stadium have made their feelings known over their stance on current head coach Arsene Wenger, with banners, chants and on one occasion an aeroplane donning the 'Wenger Out' phrase, that's become synonymous with Gunners fans globally.

However, these chants have escalated at an alarming rate following their embarrassing 2-1 defeat to Swedish side Östersunds FK on Thursday and Sunday's lacklustre display in the 3-0 loss to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley.

The veteran tactician still has one year left on his current contract but reports in English media claim Wenger will end his 23-year association with the club if they fail to qualify for the UEFA Champions League at the end of the season.

And Henry, who scored 228 goals in 376 games for the Londoners in nine seasons and a member of the 2003/04 squad that last lifted a league title for the side, has put his name in the hat as a potential successor if Wenger vacates his role.

"I still have a job to do with Belgium, but let's see what's going to happen," the Belgium national team assistant coach told Sky Sports. "It will be a dream for me, but I'm still with Belgium. Interested? Yes, who wouldn't be?

"But I can't talk about that out of respect for the man that is in charge still and my job that I'm doing right now with Belgium. But who wouldn't be interested?"
