Tony Adams has warned Thierry Henry that he may not
be cut out for coaching, Goal reports.
The World Cup-winning striker recently called time on
his glittering playing career and had hinted he was
looking to move in to management.
However, Gunners stalwart Adams advised the 37-
year-old to think carefully before taking on any
“Just because he’s one of the best players to ever play
the game doesn’t mean he’s going to be a great coach
or manager,” Adams exclusively told Goal.
“Thierry is a great man but he’s not even started in the
coaching profession yet.
“I was with Jose Mourinho at Inter, and he said to me
that I was 10 or 20 years behind. Whilst I was winning
all of those trophies with Arsenal, he was learning how
to be a coach.”
Adams – who is an advisor at Azerbaijani club FK
Gabala and is helping to promote the Baku 2015
European Games – also suggested that Dennis
Bergkamp may struggle to get his coaching career off
“What will get in the way for Dennis is his flying. It’ll be
difficult for him to go any higher because he’s adamant
he’ll never get on a plane again.”
Baku 2015 is the first ever European Games, an
exciting and innovative multi-sport event for the
continent which will take place from 12 – 28 June
