Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry has confirmed his exit from popular media outlet Sky Sports ahead of the new football season.
Henry, 40, who is an assistant manager with the Belgium national team, announced his exit via his official Twitter account as he revealed that the decision is in a bid to fulfill his long-term managerial ambition.
The former France forward was part of the team that finished third at the just concluded FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
While revealing his exit on Twitter after four years with Sky Sports, Henry said: “Over the last 4 years I have had some extremely rewarding coaching experiences in football. These experiences have only made me more determined to fulfil my long term ambition to become a football manager.
“It is with sadness, therefore, that I have decided that I must leave @SkySports 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.” The 1998 World Cup winner concluded.
