The Arsenal legend Thierry Henry seems to think that manager Arsene Wenger is one of the best managers in the world, and that his skills are enhanced by the way he treats his players and by the fact that he cares about the players.
“He makes you believe in yourself,” Henry told The Independent.
“He will let you be what you want to be. And obviously at times he has to be hard. That’s him, he will make you aware of your abilities and make sure you take care of it and take advantage of it.”
When asked whether Wenger gets angry in the dressing room or not, Henry replied:”He does now and then, but that’s often the way it has to be, kind of political.
“He loves them so much that sometimes… he’s not going to lose it like all managers. And that’s the beauty of him, he believes in his players so much that sometimes, like you see recently, his players can turn a situation around just like that.
“Arsenal were losing and they came back. He believes in the team.”
The French star striker is one of the most likely people who could replace Arsene Wenger once the manager decides to retire. Henry has spoken about the possibility of taking over after Wenger leaves in several occasions, and it seems that he certainly seems capable of carrying on Wenger’s philosophy if he did take the helm at Arsenal.
