Thierry Henry still has a desire to 'one day' manage Arsenal

Thierry Henry has reiterated his desire to one day manage Arsenal but accepts he is "far" from landing the job.

The club's all-time top scorer was set to to coach the Gunners' Under-18 this season, but rejected the offer after Arsene Wenger asked him to also step down from his punditry role with Sky Sports.

Henry was then appointed as part of Roberto Martinez's new-look coaching setup with the Belgium national team as he continues to gain experience within a backroom staff, but conceded he still thinks about stepping into the hotseat at the Emirates Stadium.

"I'm living my dream from day to day," Henry told RMC.

"The first time I scored a goal, it was like 'Oh, I scored a goal!' I lived my dream. "I will not say no to coaching Arsenal one day. If I say no,I would be lying.

I have to respect that there are people who are in place there already. I have not done anything as a coach yet.

"What I feel for Arsenal is true and I have felt it for a long time. I'm not going to say it does not make me cold or hot. I think about it, but I'm far from it.

When pressed on coaching France, Henry replied: "Like everyone else! But I can not pretend to say 'I will be coaching here or there'. The craft is hard. Let me learn and we'll see later."
