Thierry Henry will become the most highly paid football pundit on television when he joins Sky at the start of 2015.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona striker, who retired on Tuesday, will be paid £4million a year, according to the Daily Mail, a figure that will eclipse the reported £1.2m a year that Gary Neville earns the channel.

He told the Daily Telegraph that he plans to take his coaching badges, likely with the support of Arsenal, and thought it would be "a dream" to work at the club, he wants to do it on merit.

"Can you teach, can you be patient? All these problems. People think they are all managers in their own way, but it’s not that easy."
