Thierry Henry also once coached the Arsenal academy team and he has earned some bit of experience there before he quit after the gunners told him to leave his Sky Sports job and focus on coaching their academy squad.
Henry has worked as assistant to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez since 2016, the intermittent nature of worldwide football allowing the 40-year-old to juggle both commitments. In the end, it was the country Henry played for that emerged victorious and ended up winning the World Cup.
