The Daily Telegraph have reported that Thierry Henry is keen for an Arsenal return. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but some time in the future, the Barcelona striker would like to return to the club he clearly holds dear in his heart.
Henry said: “It doesn’t matter what happens with my new club, I will never find the same affection that I was shown at Arsenal, partly because I think I will never play for another squad for eight years – my legs won’t let me.
“To play for Arsenal for eight years, winning or losing at Highbury, the joy, the sadness, everything was simply incredible.
“You often return to the place that you belong and, therefore, I hope one day to be able to work with the club.
“I have the club in my blood – I always follow Arsenal when they play and I’m happy when they win.”
Could it be that Henry is having regrets over his move to Spain? While many predicted that the Gunners would struggle without their former talisman, his departure is now seen as beneficial to the team as a whole, allowing younger members of the team to play with more freedom. Would Arsenal fans welcome Henry back as a player?
