Arsenal’s all-time top scorer Thierry Henry said it would be a “dream” to manage the club.


The Gooners season is threatening to unravel after their capitulation to Manchester City in the League Cup final where they crumbled 3-0 at Wembley on Sunday and are 10 points off the top four in the Premier League. Their only chance of silverware this season is to win the Europa League


Arsene Wenger is under contract at Arsenal until 2019 but a failure to qualify for the Champions League for a second straight year would ramp up pressure for him to step down.


Asked on-air after the game about whether replacing Wenger would appeal to him, the Sky Sports pundit, who is also a member of Belgium’s coaching staff, said: “I still have a job to do with Belgium, but let’s see what’s going to happen.


“It will be a dream for me, but I’m still with Belgium.


“Interested? Yes, who wouldn’t be? But I can’t talk about that out of respect for the man that is in charge still and my job that I’m doing right now with Belgium. But who wouldn’t be interested?”


Henry, who was brought to Arsenal by Wenger in 1999, believes a lack of consistency is the key to the club’s troubles, with the Gunners having lost six games in all competitions since the turn of the year.
