Thierry Henry has taken to Twitter to react to his departure from his coaching role at Arsenal.

The Gunners legend had been working with the youth players at the club as part of his UEFA A license course.

The Gunners had been impressed by his work, even going as far as to offer him the role of Under 18 assistant manager.

However, Arsene Wenger had insisted that he could only take up the position should he agree to give up his role as a pundit with Sky Sports.

It was believed that the Frenchman was concerned by the potential of Henry criticising the current youngsters, something he has done in the past, and then having to work with them on the training field.

The 38-year-old rejected the proposal though, instead electing to depart the Emirates and continue his work elsewhere. And reacting on Twitter, he has thanked the club and said he respects his former manager’s decision.

 

 

 

It now remains to be seen where Henry will look to move to next, with a number of clubs sure to welcome him with open arms.

Perhaps he could try to follow Mikel Arteta to Manchester City and link up with his former manager Pep Guardiola.
