Thierry Henry has been warned he will have to undergo a "psychological and mental transformation" if he wishes to succeed as a manager.

The retired striker is presently working with Arsenal's Under-18 team while undertaking his coaching badges.

Henry became the club's record goalscorer after Arsene Wenger signed him from Juventus in 1999, and the manager has told him how different coaching a team is in comparison to being a footballer.

"[Henry] will discover what the job is about and you have to go through that process if you want to one day manage a football team," Wenger told Arsenal's official club website.

 

"The job of a player is centred on you and the job of a coach is centred on others. You find you just focus on others and how you can help them.

"It demands a psychological and mental transformation that is not always easy. It also demands how to get what you know is available in other people in the most simplistic way."
