Arsenal hero Thierry Henry has put his name in the hat to succeed Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.

Wenger has been pressed by a number of Gooners to leave his position as manager at the end of the season following a string of bad performances this term.

Now the club’s record goal scorer Thierry Henry has revealed his pride at being linked with managing Arsenal – and admits the role is a job that anyone would want.

Henry, speaking on Sky Sports News (via the Mail), labelled the Gunners’ defending as ‘shocking’ as he picked apart two goals from Sergio Aguero and Vincent Kompany that exploited lapses at the back.

‘Obviously I’m passing my badges and I’m nearly done,’ Henry, currently working as an assistant with the Belgium national team, said. ‘Who wouldn’t like to be the Arsenal coach?

The Gunners legend scored over 200 goals for the Arsenal in a six year spell, before leaving for Barcelona in 2007.

Henry remains the club’s all-time record goalscorer.

Gooners, is Thierry the right man for the job? Let us know in the comments…
