​Arsenal legend Henry: I speak to Pep, Wenger whenever I can

Former Arsenal and Barcelona star Thierry Henry admits he is always speaking to his old coaches.

Henry had the privilege of playing under Arsene Wenger for most of his career, and under Pep Guardiola at Barca.

The Frenchman recently stepped down as coach of CF Montreal due to family reasons.

Henry told FourFourTwo: "Whenever I see a coach, I always speak to them. Obviously, I speak to Pep, and I speak to Arsene whenever I can reach him. We speak because when I was a player and he was a coach, I was chewing his ear out. Now as a coach I want to know things.

"Arsene triggered my brain – I needed that at the time.

"I needed to be more confident, to realise what type of player I was and what I could do. I started to ask myself the right questions. I always blamed others, but I began to blame myself first.

"I started to see how I could help others instead of saying to others, 'Hey, you need to help me'."

Henry also stated he would love to one day manage Barcelona or Arsenal.
