Henry, who played under Wenger for more than eight years in North London, recently quit his punditry position to focus on management.
Asked about Henry’s rumoured interest in the Bordeaux position, Wenger told Corse Martin: “Yes, he wants to do it, he is intelligent and he has the qualities.
“The existential question that we always ask ourselves is whether we are ready to sacrifice our life for the coaching profession. Being passionate is selfish work.
“When you are passionate, you steal your time from those whom you love and to whom you could have given much more.”
