Arsenal legend Henry: I can manage again

Thierry Henry believes he can be a successful coach.

The Arsenal legend lasted just three months as manager of Monaco before being sacked earlier this year.

"I don't think about the negative, I think about the positive. That's why I went to Monaco and that's why I still want to be a coach. You think about having a positive impact," he told the Telegraph.

"Call me crazy if you want, but I love football and I believe I can be a successful coach. I'm not thinking about the pain, I'm not thinking about failure. I don't like easy. I like to lead and it's on me to make it happen. The same when I joined Arsenal as a player, the same when I went to Belgium with Roberto. It's an evolution.

"Communication and honesty from the start is key. What's the job? Is the job to stay up, is the job to win the League or be in the Champions League?

"But how and what is success? Is success improving players? Ultimately, results are the most important thing, but I want to improve players as well."
