Thierry Henry will be an Arsenal manager one day in the future if he wants to be, according to former Gunner Ray Parlour.
The legendary French striker is deciding his next move after announcing he has left New York Red Bulls after over four years service for the MLS side.
The 37-year-old has spoken of his desire to return to Arsenal one day and Parlour thinks he would make a good boss.
“I think he will definitely get involved with Arsenal. I certainly believe, one day, if he really wants to be a manager, he will be the manager of Arsenal,” Parlour told talkSPORT.
“He was such an intelligent player. Arsene Wenger used to have a meeting on a Monday with the players after a game and Thierry would always have his say. He would make some great points, not just about forwards, but about defending and how we defend as a team.
“He always had that charisma to be a manager. And look at his name around the world. People would want to play for him and he would attract big players.”
Boss Arsene Wenger, though, has urged Henry to think carefully about what he wants to do next.
“It’s a different job, but it’s dedication. In this job, it’s a dedication of your life. You have to realise there is nothing else than that,” he said.
