Henry explains why Wenger is a bad coach for England
– The Football Association of England are chasing Arsenal’s coach Arsene Wenger
– Arsenal have reportedly found new manager for Arsenal
– Legendary Thierry Henry speaks about Arsene Wenger
Legendary Arsenal forward Thierry Henry is sure that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will not become the next England manager.
Wenger has recently moved past his two-decade anniversary as manager.
England manager Sam Allardyce resigned his position as the manager of the Three Lions. During an undercover investigation by The Telegraph (UK), the former Sunderland and West Ham boss was heard allegedly negotiating a £400,000 deal to act as an ambassador overseas.
And The Daily Telegraph reports that the FA will attempt to prise Arsene Wenger away from Arsenal at the end of the season and install him as the new England manager.
In their turn Daily Star reports that Eddie Howe will be the new coach when Arsene Wenger leaves the club.
However, Henry said: “You can never say never, but I don’t see it happening. I said recently that Arsene likes being on the pitch on a daily basis, and that’s not the case when you coach a national team.”

He added: “The preference would be for [an English manager] because the missing link I think in getting consistent England performances in tournaments is linked to this issue of fear and pride, so the team identity”.
He stressed: “I don’t want to rule out candidates who are not English that would also be terrific and also wanted to do the job for the long term. It would be crazy to narrow the pool so much, but our preference would be for English.”
