Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has revealed that his ultimate career ambition is to manage his former club, though he would not hold out for it.
The former French striker is currently assisting Belgium manager Roberto Martinez while he retains his role as a Sky Sport pundit.
The ex-player is ready to be patient for the role as he desires it but he could not hold out for it.
“Everyone thinks I dream of Arsenal. Yes. But it’s just a dream. How could I be pretentious enough to think they’ll have me? I’m just starting. I’m trying to became a coach. I’ve no pretence to know where I could go one day. I’ll go where I’m wanted,” the Premier League legend said.
Henry played at Arsenal from 1999 to 2007, scoring 174 goals in 254 games. He played at Barcelona before he ended his career playing in the MLS for New York Red Bulls. His focus is on developing his football managerial skills and helping young talents develop. Continue reading
Soccer Pundit Ian Wright is mad at statement of West Ham United playmaker Dimitri Payet.
The France international recently admitted that he was open to the idea of going back to his former club Marseille in his home country.
The Euro 2016 star said:
“Marseille have a new project which seems interesting. Marseille know how attached I am to the club. When I talk about it, I say the best possible thing, because that is what I think, so why not.”
This made the former Arsenal star blast Payet. Wright opined that Payet’s comments would anger West Ham fans, adding that he “thinks [Payet] is out of order coming out to say stuff like that.”
“I think what you see with his is somebody that, up until this point, has obviously had an attitude problem and a consistency problem. Now that we are seeing a little bit of consistency from him, he is holding West Ham to ransom,” Wright added. Continue reading
Ian Wright believes that Manchester United fans should show a lot of patience with Paul Pogba and he has likened the situation faced by the Frenchman to that of Mesut Ozil after the German’s move from Real Madrid.
Ozil came with a huge reputation, and a huge transfer fee as well, from Madrid.
After an initial flurry of performances, the German struggled throughout the campaign with many criticising the transfer fee and the quality of the player. Since then, he has come good and has been responsible for Arsenal lifting two FA Cup titles.
Pogba came to Manchester United for a world record transfer fee of £89 million, almost twice that of Mesut Ozil, and he has been criticised for his lack of any impact in the team in recent games. United manager Jose Mourinho has called for pundits and fans to show patience with the midfielder since he still has to settle at the club Continue reading
Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright believes that it is time for Calum Chambers to look at opportunities elsewhere after not being in the first choice starting line-up under Arsene Wenger for the 2016-17 season.
The former Southampton defender was brought to the club in the summer of 2014 for a fee of around £ 14 million. However, his presence at Arsenal has coincided with a problematic time in terms of injuries. As a result, Wenger has had to dig deep into the squad of players
and many of them have had to play in a number of positions.
Chambers is widely seen as a player who was badly affected as a result of being played in a number of positions across the back four. After making 36 appearances in all competitions in his first season at the club, the 21-year-old went on to make only 22 appearances last season. This included a run of just 12 games in the Premier League, which seemed to suggest that Wenger had lost faith in the player. Even though the player still has age on his side, it became clear that Wenger does not fancy him anymore when the club signed Rob Holding from Bolton Wanderers in the summer for just £ 2 million.
Ian Wright is a legend in his own right. Even today he is considered a legendary player of Arsenal.
He expressed admiration for his fellow players as well like Mesut Ozil. The match that was played between Slovakia and Germany in the current Euro tournament says Wright commenting on the admirable playing skills of Mesut Ozil
. He stated how he would have loved to play along with Ozil. Wright admired the playing strategy of Gunners in the game. He also stood by Mesut at a time when he needed more of encouragement and less of criticism as other experts were piling on the player. Ian has been crucial in following the game strategies of the Arsenal team and whether they have been doing right by the players who have been contributing to the wins and losses. Continue reading
Ian Wright has earned every right to be considered a legend at Arsenal.
For him to have expressed admiration for a fellow player is definitely a rare occurrence. He has stated that Mesut Ozil has playing skills that are admirable and he would love to play alongside the man. The match that Germany has scheduled with Slovakia in Euro 2016, Wright has been talking about the best players of Germany and how some of them are assets and wonderfully skilled teammates whom he wishes he had the honor of playing alongside with.
Wright expressed admiration for the playmaker of Gunners even though he had not been able to score a penalty shot in the last tie situation that arose. It is well that a legendary player has stood by someone who needed less of criticism and more of encouragement for the forthcoming matches. Indeed, with different players coming under pressure as the quarter finals of Euro 2016 proceed, it is important that their confidence levels are kept boosted at all times.
