Arsenal legend Thierry Henry can be top manager amid Gunners' job links, insists Roberto Martinez

Sky TV pundit Henry has refused to rule himself out of the running as the debate rages on about who should succeed Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.

Henry, 40, has been working as an assistant to Martinez for the past two years.

He is a potential contender to take over from Wenger with former Swansea City, Wigan and Everton manager Martinez believing he will do well wherever he goes.

He told talkSPORT'S Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: "Thierry is a passionate man for football, he lives football.

"Any role that he takes in football, he will make it succeed.

Henry 'lives football', according to Roberto Martinez

"He is very intelligent and he has that approachability. He connects with players.

"Thierry identifies how he can use his own experiences with players and that is going to be a big strength in his coaching career.

Martinez, though, would back Henry to triumph in whatever he does in the game.

He added: "The way Thierry works, he will always be a successful person.
