There is a recent trend in club football is the retention of former players as associates, coaches and fans for the club that brought them to lime-light and brought out the best in them.
We know the role Zidane is currently playing at Real Madrid, Luis Enrique for Barcelona, even Ryan Giggs played a bit-part coaching role before he left Manchester United.
Shockingly though, the most revered Arsenal legend Thierry Henry parted ways with Arsenal following an altercation with Arsene Wenger. Wenger has been heavily criticized for his inability to get the legends of the club involved with the club’s affairs.
Lately, Henry has been involved heavily as a football pundit. Lending his voice as a fan also, he has being a staunch critique of Wenger following his failure to change his coaching ways on the pitch and the transfer market.
However, Retired Swedish midfielder Freddie Ljungberg is now being considered the favourite to be offered the position, per the Times.
An Arsenal player for nine years, Ljungberg has impressed Arsene Wenger with his work with the Arsenal U15s since returning to the club in January 2015.
Thierry Henry was assistant manager to Arsenal U18s manager Kwame Ampadu and the Gunners are currently looking for a replacement.
