Thierry Henry admits ultimate target is Arsenal job

Thierry Henry admits he dreams of taking charge of Arsenal.

The Frenchman, who is Arsenal's all-time record goalscorer with 228 goals, recently left Major League Soccer club Montreal Impact.

The former striker told FourFourTwo: "I'm an Arsenal fan. So if you're asking me if one day I'd like to coach Arsenal, then yes. If you ask if one day I'd like to be Arsenal's kit man, then yes. If you ask if one day I'd like to cut the grass at the Emirates Stadium, then yes.

"But it's a utopia, and I am far from that. If you ask me am I dreaming, yes I'm dreaming. But when you're not dreaming, you're awake and there is a reality. Would I love to coach Arsenal? Yes. Would I love to go to Barcelona? Yes.

"I'm on my learning curve, I want to do well for the team I'm coaching, then time will tell. If you're not successful, you're not going to have those types of opportunities. I'm just concentrating on what I can control, and the rest is a massive utopia."
