Arsene Wenger says Arsenal’s young players will benefit from being coached by Thierry Henry.
The club’s all-time record goalscorer announced his retirement in December and has subsequently started a career as a television pundit.
Henry is also studying for his coaching badges and has recently taken sessions with some of the club’s youth teams.
"He makes his first steps as a coach and that’s always a bit impressive when you start"
“Thierry [is studying for] his badges,” the boss explained. “He makes his first steps as a coach and that’s always a bit impressive when you start. It’s good for our young players to be coached by him, a legend of the club.
“He has been here once or twice but I don’t know how often he has to do his sessions. I don’t see him when he’s here because he’s on a different ground and he’s with the youth team.
“We are very happy to welcome everybody. All our former players come back here, all of them.”
