During his time at the club, Henry became Arsenal’s all-time leading goalscorer with 175 goals across two spells, won two Premier League titles and two FA Cups.
However, despite achieving true legend status at the Emirates, Henry is keeping his feet on the ground regarding the possibility of returning to the club in a coaching capacity.
The 39-year-old is currently the assistant manager of the Belgium national team, working alongside manager Roberto Martinez.
“Everyone thinks I dream of Arsenal. Yes. But it’s just a dream,” he told L’Equipe.
“How could I be pretentious enough to think they’ll have me?”
He added: “I’m just starting. I’m trying to become a coach. I’ve no pretence to know where I could go one day. I’ll go where I’m wanted.”
Henry has had the opportunity to coach at Arsenal in the past, when he was offered a role as coach of the Under-18s.
However Arsene Wenger would not allow the former France international to combine his punditry commitments with a full-time coaching position and Henry soon left the club again.
“It was simple. The academy boss offered me the post of Under-18s coach. Arsene said that it was not compatible with my role as a pundit,” Henry said.
Time will tell what the future holds for Henry and Arsenal… but we’d bet our bottom dollar that this pair aren’t finished quite yet.
