Arsenal legend Thierry Henry wants to replace Arsene Wenger as manager after the Gunners’ 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Manchester City.
Arsenal boss Wenger is in the spotlight after his Gunners side were swatted aside by Manchester City at Wembley.
The Frenchman was outsmarted by City counterpart Pep Guardiola with Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva all getting on the scoresheet.
It means Arsenal are set for another trophyless season with the Gunners’ only hopes of silverware now lying in the form of the Europa League.
And Sky Sports pundit and Belgium coach Henry has admitted he is keen to take over from Wenger – but not immediately out of respect.
“I still have a job to do with Belgium, but let’s see what’s going to happen,” the Arsenal hero said.
“It will be a dream for me, but I’m still with Belgium.
“Interested? Yes, who wouldn’t be? But I can’t talk about that out of respect for the man that is in charge still and my job that I’m doing right now with Belgium.
“But who wouldn’t be interested?”
Wenger, meanwhile, was bullish after his side’s defeat.
“When you lose 3-0 of course you have to look at defending better, but I still feel like for large periods we defended well, but we lost concentration sometimes and against good teams you pay for it,” he said.
“It’s not the application that was missed it was the concentration at key periods that was missed.
“The second goal was a big goal in this game and for me, it was 100 per cent offside.
“We analyse all the games in a very mathematical way, we didn’t give too many chances away, but we gave away easy chances, and didn’t create enough for ourselves.”
