Arsenal legend Henry quits TV to go management fulltime

He was also an integral member of the historic Arsenal Premier League-winning "Invincible" team of 2004.

He also won two La Liga titles and the Champions League with Barcelona, and the 1998 World Cup and 2000 European Championship with France.

Henry is now the assistant coach of Belgium which was quite impressive in the World Cup because it became the third after defeating England on Saturday and the former Arsenal star says he quits the Sky Sports job to focus on coaching. In the end, it was the country Henry played for that emerged victorious and ended up winning the World Cup.

The Frenchman had been combining both jobs between August 2016 and the end of the World Cup in Russian Federation, where he helped Belgium to third place at the tournament.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku has been described as Thierry Henry's "pet project" by Goal's Sam Lee.

Roberto Martinez's assistant coach in the Belgium national team, Thierry Henry, has made a decision to step down as a television pundit to focus his attention on his coaching career. (Getty Images) Henry worked with Eden Hazard at the World Cup. It would have been a real boost to Fox to have some sort of cross-promotion, especially where their lineup of talent wasn't that deep.

Henry did not say whether he now has any job offers as a coach.

Henry had been with Sky since 2015 as a pundit and was making a very healthy salary of 4 million pounds per year.

The 40-year-old was even at one point considered to be in line to replace his former boss Arsene Wenger at Emirates.
