Josh Benson, a player for the Gunners' Under-15s side, revealed on Twitter yesterday that he and his team-mates had been coached by the Frenchman who is also working as a pundit for Sky Sports since hanging up his boots at the end of the last MLS season.
"Thierry Henry is making his first steps as a coach," Wenger told reporters today.
“We need a couple more strikers and maybe one or two elsewhere and I’m sure we’ll be fine.
“I’m comfortable with where we are at the moment but I’m not resting yet.
Arsenal legend Henry and Flynn are firm friends after the pair studied together on the UEFA Pro Licence coaching course run by the Football Association of Wales in Newport.
“We’ve got the makings of a good team now,” he said.
“We want competition for places and we’ve got a lot of defenders and a lot of midfielders.
"It's good for our youngsters to be coached by him. All our former players are welcome to come back here and get their coaching badges.
We're happy to have him." The news will come as little surprise after Wenger said late last year that it was "not impossible" that Henry could take up backroom role at the Emirates. but he has to decide to sacrifice his life," Wenger said last year.
