Thierry Henry says managing Arsenal is his dream and makes Arsene Wenger claim

Thierry Henry says he still dreams of managing Arsenal one day.

The Frenchman is a bona fide Gunners legend after scoring in excess of 200 goals for the club.

A return to north London as manager has been mooted in the past. But after a mixed start to his coaching career, Henry doesn’t look set to be in the Arsenal hot seat any time soon.

He is currently managing MLS outfit Montreal Impact, although hasn’t given up hope of leading his beloved Arsenal.

“I do dream of managing Arsenal but I also dream of running up the court and doing a slam dunk. It doesn’t mean it’ll happen,” he told Canal Plus.

Arsenal’s transition into the post-Arsene Wenger era hasn’t been entirely seamless.

Unai Emery was sent packing in November after less than two seasons in charge.

Mikel Arteta is now in the hot seat and performances have been steadily improving.

Henry has suggested the seeds of Arsenal’s demise were sown during the end of Wenger’s reign.

“It was already difficult before Arsene left,” he added. “It was already difficult.

“I have learnt by coming onto this side of things (coaching), there are things that I heard, that you might hear something from someone you know or I know and we might know things.

“But we don’t actually know anything, certainly not enough to speak about it, since then I have decided it is best not to get involved in these sorts of things.”

Arteta masterminded a hard-fought win over Everton at the Emirates on Sunday.

The Spaniard claimed he was delighted with his battling troops.

"I'm really pleased with the performance," Arteta explained.

"It's not easy to play three times in seven days, we got back late from Greece, and then to concede an early goal as well.

"That asks questions of you. The team reacted really well.

“This is the reaction I am hoping for when we face disappointment. It's the best week since I've been here."
