Arsenal, Belgium, Clubs, Story

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez told ESPN Thierry Henry’s success as a player with France can help his team deal with pressure in the World Cup semi-finals.
Unless a “big opportunity” arises, Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he won’t feel the need to make any further summer signings.

Thierry Henry is quitting his job as a pundit for Sky Sports in order to focus on a career in management.

The Arsenal great has been one of Sky’s most high-profile pundits for several years but has also worked as an assistant coach for Belgium since 2016 and helped the team reach the semifinals of the World Cup.

He said on Twitter that his experiences in coaching “have only made me more determined to fulfil my long term ambition to become a football manager.”

“It is with sadness, therefore, that I have decided that I must leave @SkySports to enable me to spend more time on the pitch and concentrate on my journey to achieving that goal,” Henry wrote.

Henry did not say whether he currently has any job offers as a coach. He expressed his interest in the Arsenal job when Arsene Wenger stepped down, but was not one of the final candidates.

The former striker also worked as a coach in Arsenal’s academy before leaving in 2016 after Wenger told him he couldn’t combine that role with his punditry job.
