Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is confident Thierry Henry will bounce back from his sacking at AS Monaco.
Henry lost his job after just four months in charge.
Wenger said, “If you arrive in October, and the team is in a very bad position, you have three months. Because in January everybody starts to become nervous that things could go very badly.
“You have less time when you arrive in the middle of the season. That is what happened to Thierry.
“How he bounces back will be very important. I think he has the quality and desire to make a career, and a career is judged on the longer period.
“I started my job at 33 years of age, I had very promising people around me, and many of them disappeared while some survived. Why? You need luck, and work hard and it’s always very difficult to predict a career of a manager.
“It depends on the quality of the players and the confidence we get.”
