Arsene Wenger Tells Henry He Has to Dedicate His Life.

Arsene Wenger has sent out a message to Thierry Henry and it states that it is not an easy task to become a top class manager so he will have to dedicate his life if he is to attain that level.

The club's all-time record goal scorer revealed earlier this week that he will be leaving New York Red Bulls and even though he never gave a hint about what his next move will be, there are already speculations suggesting that he is considering a managerial role.

The Arsenal manager pointed out that it can be very difficult making a transition from playing to managing.

“It's a different job, but it's dedication,” the Arsenal manager said. “In this job, it's a dedication of your life. You have to realise there is nothing else than that.

“If you look around me [for] people who have worked without interruption for 30 years in this job, you will not find many.

“[Thierry] has to choose what he wants to do after his [playing] career.”

The Arsenal coach then went on to say that his fellow compatriot deserves a one-off friendly for France as a form of appreciation for his contributions to the national team.

“I think that is the minimum the French federation can do,” he said. “After what happened with Ireland in the qualifiers, the situation was not handled too well by the federation.

“I don’t think the feeling between Henry and the federation was good at the time and I think they owe him that. I hope he will get that, and get the honour he deserves.”
