"[Henry] will discover what the job is about and you have to go through that process if you want to one day manage a football team," Wenger told Arsenal's official club website.

"The job of a player is centred on you and the job of a coach is centred on others. You find you just focus on others and how you can help them.

"It demands a psychological and mental transformation that is not always easy. It also demands how to get what you know is available in other people in the most simplistic way.”
