Arsenal fell to a dismal 3-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City in the Carabao League Cup final on Sunday and it was a result that once again led to calls for Arsene Wenger to be shown the exit door.
The Gunners barely had a sniff in a totally one-sided affair that was dominated by a Manchester City side that didn’t need to step out of third gear.
And following the result, Thierry Henry was asked on the Sky Sports post-match analysis broadcast on Sunday at 4pm, whether he would be interested in the Arsenal managerial post were it to become available.
The Frenchman’s response was that it would be a “dream” for him to manage his former club but supporters of the North London outfit were not overly keen on the idea of the legendary striker taking the role.
There were fans that were concerned that if he succeed Wenger and it wasn’t a positive return, it would tarnish Henry’s status with the club.
While other Gunners fans felt that the club should be looking at managers with more experience to guide the club back to the sides at the top of the Premier League.
Arsenal are currently sixth in the league table, eight points from the top four and it looks as though they will make it two consecutive years out of the Champions League which had been their holy grail up until now.
Here is a selection of Twitter responses on social media to Henry’s statement:
Don't be silly

Thierry Henry being touted for Arsenal manager, when his coaching experience amounts to a stint coaching Arsenal u-18s and being assistant manager for Belgium. Pfffffffff.

I wouldn’t want Thierry Henry as manager. It’s not a time for romance.
