Thierry Henry thinks he has still got a lot to learn as a coach before being talked about as a potential successor to Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.
Wenger's future remains uncertain after another difficult season, which has seen them knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage for a seventh consecutive season and slip out of the Premier League's top four.
The Frenchman, whose contract expires at the end of the season, is yet to announce whether he will continue as Arsenal boss, having spent almost 21 years in charge of the Gunners.
And Sky Sports pundit Henry, who is currently working as an assistant to Belgium manager Roberto Martinez, has been linked with the top job at the Emirates should Wenger leave at the end of the season.
The Gunners' all-time leading goalscorer, speaking to Olivier Dacourt in an interview that aired on Canal Plus on Sunday in France, believes he may not yet be ready to take over from Wenger at Arsenal.
"It doesn't depend on me, there are things that have to be respected," Henry told Canal Plus.
"When I say that I want to train them, yes it's the club in my heart, but that doesn't mean that you have an automatic right to it."
When asked about seeing his name touted as a potential successor to Wenger at Arsenal. Henry added: "l, like you, hear things.
"I hear and then it's difficult for me to talk about it because I have an enormous amount of respect for the coach and what he has done.
"People are prone to talk, I can't stop them from talking, but I am with the Belgium team, and I am preparing myself.
"Am I ready? Am I not ready? We don't know and we won't know, but I also need to learn my job."
