Arsenal legend Thierry Henry who has been tipped to replace Arsene Wenger at the Emirates is edging closer to becoming a manager after completing his Uefa A licence.
The 38-year-old Emirates cult hero is now just one qualification away from being able to manage at Premier League level. He is expected to go on to complete his Uefa pro licence, which will also allow him to manage in Uefa competitions.
The former World Cup winner with France posted a picture of him being presented with the qualification on his Instagram account.
‘Massive thanks to Osian Roberts @FAWCoachEd & Arsenal Academy for helping me pass my Uefa A Coaching Licence #proud,’ he wrote.
But after completing his A licence he can now manage in the professional game at a level below the top-flight or within a club academy. Henry undertook the course under the guidance of the Football Association of Wales.
Henry has been heavily linked with replacing Arsene Wenger when he decides to retire as Arsenal manager. And he is one step closer to becoming a Premier League manager.
