Arsenal Boss Leaves Door Open for Legend’s Return

The Rumour

ARSENE WENGER has opened the door for Thierry Henry to make a sensational return to Arsenal.

Henry is still idolised by Arsenal fans after an eight-year spell with the Gunners in which he scored a club record 214 goals.

The French superstar has failed to reach the same heights at Barcelona, but Wenger has no doubt he still has all the qualities to succeed at the highest level.

Asked if there was a chance of Henry returning to The Emirates, Wenger said: “Of course. I hope for the club to have people of his quality.

“It would be difficult as a player because in 2010 he will be 33. I still talk to him. He was on the phone not long ago.

“Thierry does not miss one Arsenal game on TV. He even watches the reserves.

“He has a very strong link with this club. He had a massive influence here which also had a massive influence on his career.

“I believe somewhere in everybody’s career one club has a stronger pull than any other. For him it would be Arsenal.”

The Analysis

This would be quite a coup and one that would surely greatly please the Gunners support who are in need of some cheering up after a fourth successive season without silverware. Thierry Henry is clearly a player who loves his former club and if he were to secure a Champions League triumph (if indeed he even recovers from injury to play) then perhaps he would consider a return to north London?

Perhaps it is more likely that he would consider a move by the end of next season when his contract at the Nou Camp comes to an end and giving the successful season he has had this term the is an argument that TH14 will, even at 33, still be a player well capable of shining in the Premier League once again.

The Likelihood

Henry to Arsenal: I think this is a distinct possibility but the legend’s return may have to wait until the summer of 2010.
