Thierry Henry: Wants to stay in the game once his playing days are over
Thierry Henry has admitted he would like to stay in football when he hangs up his boots.
But the Frenchman is not sure what position he would like to take up.
The 34-year-old signed a 'multi-year contract' with the New York Red Bulls in 2010 after leaving Barcelona.
He told the club's official magazine: "Would I become a coach? I don't know. When I see what happens to a lot of coaches. Some got a job for one month, two months, two days.
"Then there is Arsene Wenger who is in his 15th year, and Alex Ferguson. Everyone knows I love football and living without it is difficult for me.
"After my career, it is obvious I will remain around football, but how, in which job, for which club? I don't know."
Gunner for life
The forward spent eight years with Arsenal and would welcome a return to North London once his playing days are over.
He added: "I believe Arsenal are still playing good football. I became a Gunners' fan for life. Something happened with the fans, which I could not forget.
"I want the team to have success and go forward. Either you say they didn't win anything for six years or you try to go forward with that group.
"It has not been easy for Arsene. Pat Vieira and I left and I agree it is a long transition. This season will be very important for the coach and the club.
"I really hope we will bring back a trophy. But we must not forget what Arsene did for Arsenal. In football, it is easy to judge people at the time. But could we find a better solution? We don't know."
