Wenger tips Henry to succeed as Monaco manager

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has tipped Thierry Henry for success after the Gunners legend took his first steps into management by taking over from Leonardo Jardim as Monaco boss.

Henry began his playing career with Monaco and was actually handed his debut as a 17-year-old by Wenger who managed the principality club from 1987-1994.

Wenger would then bring the former France international striker to Arsenal from Juventus in 1999, with Henry going on to become one of the Gunners, and the Premier League‘s, greatest ever players.

Now Wenger reckons his former pupil has everything you need to become a top manager.

“Good choice, he has a lot of credibility,” Wenger told Sky Sports.

“He is very intelligent and understands football.

“Like a lot of players on this high level, he has all the ingredients. Of course you always need a little luck and a good attitude.”

However, Wenger also pointed out that Henry must be prepared to make some serious sacrifices to succeed in management.

“You have to sacrifice a lot,” he added. “Basically you have to sacrifice all of your life.”
