The Daily Mail have quoted Arsene Wenger as saying that "It is not impossible" for Thierry Henry to return to Arsenal in a coaching capacity. Wenger made clear that he doesn't hand out "honorary job " willy-nilly, instead "it has to be a job that is available and one where you get up in the morning and do something."

Arsenal could certainly use someone as experienced and iconic as Henry to help their current squad step-up a level. One of the biggest criticisms of Arsenal teams in recent years is their incredible ability to collectively bottle it at crucial stages of the season and it's an all to familiar recurrence for increasingly frustrated fans. More valuable than his technical coaching would be Thierry's impact in the dressing room. The Frenchman's mentality is one of a winner and his influence could prove tide-turning for this Arsenal side.

One player who would really benefit from Henry's teachings is Danny Welbeck. Wenger has himself said that part of the reason he decided to sign Welbeck was the fact he possessed similar attributes to 'The King'. The young Englishmen has plenty of potential, but with Henry as a mentor he could blossom into a truly world class striker. Food for thought, Mr Wenger?
