Thierry Henry has announced that he has quit his role as a Sky Sports pundit in order to concentrate on becoming a manager.
The 40-year-old is currently working as a coach with Belgiums national team who finished third at the World Cup this summer.
Henry also has coaching experience with Arsenals academy team and was even tipped to replace Arsene Wenger as manager when the 68-year-old decided to step down at the end of last season.
The former France international joined Sky Sports in 2015 but now leaves his position in order to focus on his managerial career.
Over the last four years I have had some extremely rewarding coaching experiences in football, said Henry.
These experiences have only made me more determined to fulfill my long-term ambition to become a football manager.
It is with sadness, therefore, that I have decided that I must leave Sky Sports to enable me to spend more time on the pitch and concentrate on my journey to achieving that goal.
I would like to thank everyone at Sky for making me feel so welcome and at ease throughout my time with them and I wish them all the best for the future. Great memories.
