Chelsea forward Eden Hazard is certain that former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has what it takes to be a top manager.
Hazard, 27, made this known in an interview monitored on Daily Star as he further revealed that the Arsenal legend lacks managerial experience but he’ll learn on the job.
The former Lille star is presently on international duty with the Belgium squad alongside Henry, who is the assistant coach in the Red Devils’ technical crew setup under manager Roberto Martinez.
Belgium talisman Hazard spoke to reporters ahead of his side’s United Nations League clash with Switzerland on Friday.
The Red Devils will also play the Netherlands in an international friendly match scheduled for next week Tuesday.
When asked about Henry in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Swiss game, Roberto Martinez confirmed that Thierry Henry would be on the team’s technical bench for the United Nations League clash amidst reports linking him with the vacant managerial job at French giants Monaco.
Henry formerly played for the principality club and is the bookmakers’ favourites to replace Portuguese tactician Leonardo Jardim as manager.
Jardim was sacked on Thursday after his team’s poor start to the season which saw Monaco win just once from nine league outings.
