Former Arsenal’s defender, Tony Adams has advised Thierry Henry to think carefully about his intention of becoming a coach as he does not seem to be cut out for the profession.
The former French player recently called time on his glittering football career and had hinted he was considering a fresh start in football coaching.
However, Adams has advised Henry to think carefully before taking up any managerial role.
Speaking with Goal.com, on Saturday, January 10, 2015, Adams stated that the success of Henry in football career might not translate to his success in football management;
“Just because he’s one of the best players to ever play the game doesn’t mean he’s going to be a great coach or manager,.
“Thierry is a great man but he’s not even started in the coaching profession yet.
“I was with Jose Mourinho at Inter, and he said to me that I was 10 or 20 years behind. Whilst I was winning all of those trophies with Arsenal, he was learning how to be a coach.” He told Goal
Adams also suggested that a fellow Aresnal’s stalwart, Dennis Bergkamp may struggle to get his coaching career off the ground.
“What will get in the way for Dennis is his flying. It’ll be difficult for him to go any higher because he’s adamant he’ll never get on a plane again.” He stated.
