Thierry Henry: I would cut the grass at Emirates Stadium

The Gunners legend has expressed his love for the North London club and admits he would welcome the opportunity to become Arsenal’s manager at some stage.

Thierry Henry started his coaching career in October 2018 by taking charge at


. However, his spell at the French club was very short and he was sacked after only 20 matches. The World Cup winner returned to coaching by accepting an offer from MLS club

CF Montreal

in November 2019. Henry parted ways with the Canadian club in February due to personal issues and he is currently out of work. However, the 43-year-old is not ready to give up on coaching and hopes his career path will lead him to his old club.

Henry told 


: “

Listen, if you ask an Arsenal fan if they’d like to coach Arsenal one day, they’ll say yes.

“If you ask an Arsenal fan if they’d like to score a goal for Arsenal, they’ll say yes. When I speak about it, it’s a utopia. People get carried away whenever I say that it’s my club, but I have it in my blood – I’m an Arsenal fan.

“So if you’re asking me if one day I’d like to coach Arsenal, then yes. If you ask if one day I’d like to be Arsenal’s kit man, then yes. If you ask if one day I’d like to cut the grass at the Emirates Stadium, then yes.”

He added:

“If you ask me am I dreaming, yes I’m dreaming. But when you’re not dreaming, you’re awake and there is a reality.

“Would I love to coach Arsenal? Yes. Would I love to go to Barcelona? Yes. Would I like to play for Arsenal again? I’d love to play for them again, but the reality is I can’t!

“I’m on my learning curve, I want to do well for the team I’m coaching, then time will tell. If you’re not successful, you’re not going to have those types of opportunities.

“I’m just concentrating on what I can control, and the rest is a massive utopia. Would I have liked to sing like Lionel Richie? Yes, but I don’t sing like Lionel Richie!”
