Arsenal record goalscorer, Thiery Henry has said he doesn’t believe Arsene Wenger will want to manage the England National Team.
The FA are yet to decide on who will take over from Roy Hodgson – who resigned after England’s disastrous outing at the Euros which ended with their second round elimination by Iceland. A number of managers are being linked with the job but Wenger has been touted as a potential front-runner and as reported, the FA is seeking to hold talks with him over the prospect of managing their team.
Speaking to Skysports, Henry said,'”What I love about Arsene is he loves being on the field on a daily basis and if you’re a coach of a national team you’re not out there on a daily basis, that’s why I don’t see that happening, but who knows?
“Arsene loves Arsenal and he’s been there for a very long time. We don’t see him leaving the club and we know the England role can be seen as the impossible job.”
Arsene Wenger has just 12 months left on his Arsenal contract and is yet to commit to a new one although there are reports that Arsenal are planning to extend that contract by two more years. Wneger is the longest serving manager in the league and will mark his 20th year as Arsenal manager next season.
