Thierry Henry has admitted that he always wants to take charge of his former side, Arsenal.
The Gunners played great for the side between 1999 and 2007 and hit 228 goals in 376 appearances while helping them play two Premier League titles before coming on loan in 2012.
Henry and Arsenal picked up four more important trophies during his first spell when he became their record record points of all time.

He is so highly regarded at the Emirates Stadium that a statue of Henry was built outside the ground.
The management career of the 42-year-old has not been so successful, starting with Monaco and being fired after three months with a record of four wins in 20 games.
He has now moved to Montreal Impact and is preparing for the new MLS season with the Canadian side.
But Henry has admitted that he would like to take over at Arsenal if the opportunity ever occurred.

“I do dream of managing Arsenal, but I also dream of running into the field and doing a slamdunk,” said Canal Plus. “It doesn’t mean it will happen.”
“But yes, I want to manage Arsenal until the day I die.”
Henry also commented on the collapse at the end of Arsene Wenger’s leadership time: “It was already difficult before Arsene left. It was already difficult.
‘I learned by getting to this side of things (coaching), there are things that I have heard, that you may hear something from someone you know or I know and we may know things.
“But we really don’t know anything, certainly not enough to talk about it, since then I have decided that it is best not to get involved with things like this.”
