Arsène Wenger believes Thierry Henry could return to Arsenal to continue the manager's legacy at the Club. 

The Gunners boss believes the best people to inherit the team once he leaves would be those who have played an important role on the pitch during his time at Arsenal. People such as Henry.

Asked if he thought the record goalscorer would eventually return, Wenger was optimistic. 

"I can see that happening," said Wenger. "I believe at some stage the legacy here has to go to some people who have had a big influence at this Club.

"One day they will want to work, maybe not necessarily with me but working because I will have to stop eventually. Maybe it will be me working with them!"
