Thierry Henry said he could see his former boss Arsene Wenger will become the next England. Wenger  has been strongly linked with the job following the sacking of Sam Allardyce last month.

“You can never say never but I personally don’t see it happening,” Henry told reporters in India’s commercial capital Mumbai.I think he answered himself recently when he said that the England manager should be English. That’s his own words,”

“I said recently that Arsene likes to be on the field on a daily basis and when you’re coach of a national team you don’t get to do that,” Henry added.

Wenger has been on the receiving end of severe criticism by some fans frustrated by Arsenal’s failure to win the Premier League since 2004.  “Be careful what you wish for because when he’s not going to be around people are going to realise what he was doing at the time,” said the World Cup winner, now an assistant coach with Belgium.

 “It looks like finally things are going the right way,” said Henry, on a promotional tour of India for sports brand Puma.

“It would be great if in his 20th season in charge he can win the title. But are they going to do it? The competition is massive,” he added.
