Thierry Henry is taking steps to becoming a coach in the forseeable future. The former Arsenal and Barcelona striker, started his coaching badges with the FA in Wales and has been granted permission by the Gunners, to work at Hale End with the youth academy.
According to reports in the UK, Henry has already handled some sessions with the various youth groups. The Frenchman is picking up invaluable experience as Hale End and will earn his A and B UEFA licences.
Henry has been tipped to become an Arsenal coach soon, but although this may look like a move in that direction, it must be noted that Arsene Wenger always allows former players to coach at the club, while undertaking their badges.
Henry announced his retirement from football last year and is currently a TV pundit with Sky.
