Arsenal legend Thierry Henry's rejected a chance to coach the club's under-18s.

Manager Arsene Wenger offered his former striker the role but told him he would have to stop working as a television pundit which is something he is unwilling to do.

Henry worked with Arsenal's academy players last season during his course to gain his UEFA A License.

However, Henry's former Arsenal Invincibles team-mate Freddie Ljungberg will coach the under-16s.
