Wenger hopes Henry will manage Arsenal in future

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he'd like to see Thierry Henry return to the club.

Henry is currently in charge of Montreal Impact in MLS.

He told the Guardian: “Well, I wish.

“I hope that Thierry Henry is successful in his career as a manager, and if he's successful as a manager he might one day come back to Arsenal.

“But I especially wish that we go back to win the championship before that happens.

“For example, now we have Mikel Arteta in charge, why should we not do it? A club is about identity.

“Identity is about values and values are about the people who carry these values. And so it's important there is a continuity on that front for me."
