Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry has backed AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe to replace Arsene Wenger as manager when the French man steps down.
Earlier in the week, it was reported that Arsenal chiefs were discussing the possibility of replacing Wenger with Howe and Henry has backed the idea.
“When Bournemouth came up last year, I wanted to know if they were going to play in the same way [as they did in the Championship],” Henry said to Sky Sports News.
“We’ve seen a lot of teams who have come up try and play in the same way they did in the Championship, like Bournemouth did.
“When he [Howe] said I’d rather die than change my philosophy, I thought that spoke volumes about the man. We all know how difficult it is to stay in this league, but the guy has stayed true to his word and kept that team in the Premier League his way.
“And you can understand the talk about Arsenal, because he’s going to fit the bill with his philosophy, identity and the way he puts his team out there. But I also liked his answer this week when he said I’m here to win games and who knows what will happen in the future.”
Howe led Bournemouth to the Premier League at the end of the 2014/2015 season and has done a remarkable job in helping the Cherries maintain their Premier League status.
