Thierry Henry has voiced his keenness on returning to the club he rose to the top with after his departure from Montreal FC.

The Frenchman left his post with the Canadian-based outfit citing time away from his kids during the current pandemic as one of the main reasons why.

Speaking to FourFourTwo, the Highbury legend seemed eager to return to the club, even offering to cut the grass at the Emirates Stadium.

Should Arsenal appoint Henry as manager?

Yes

Yes

No

No

A return to the club from it’s greatest ever player would be the best fairytale ever written. But, with Mikel Arteta laying the foundations for what is looking like a return to the top for Arsenal, it could be just a fairytale.

Henry’s managerial career has thrown up some interesting stories so far. From his struggles with former club AS Monaco to his season with Montreal in the MLS, the club legend has endured a tough start to managerial life.

However, one thing has been certain across his two roles and that’s how average he looks as a manager. There were reports coming out after his sacking from the Ligue 1 outfit over his managerial methods which painted him in an incredibly negative light.

The sequel is never better than the original, that’s a phrase you’ll hear a lot of people tell you with regards to the return of former players. I mean, in Zinedine Zidane’s case he got lucky in that he inherited a super squad at Real Madrid. But, that’s far from the case with Henry, who should he return is inheriting a side who sit a lowly 10th in the Premier League.
