Thierry Henry has not got the knowhow to become Arsenal manager yet, claims former Gunners midfielder Stewart Robson.

Arsene Wenger is under serious pressure yet again at Arsenal after signing a new two-year deal last summer.

Henry’s odds of replacing Wenger this summer have shortened since the weekend’s Carabao Cup final loss to Manchester City.

The Frenchman has been working as a pundit since retiring from the professional game in 2014 and is also the assistant to Roberto Martinez at Belgium.

But after hearing Henry on the TV for several years, Robson claims he does not have what it takes to replace Wenger.

“No I don’t (think Henry should get the job),” Robson told ESPN FC.

“I don’t think Thierry Henry has got the experience.

“When I listen to him on TV I don’t think he reads the game particularly well. He’s getting better on his punditry but I don’t think he’s the right man for the job at the moment.

“He needs to have more experience, he needs to go and coach at a lower level.

“Yes I know he’s coaching the forwards for the Belgium team, but that’s a totally different role to being a head coach.

“As head coach you’ve got to come up with a game plan, you’ve got to manage the players.

“You’ve got to do all the jobs that you need to do to be a top-class manager.

“I don’t think he’s got the experience or the knowhow to do that at the moment.”
