Thierry Henry Confirms He Will Rejoin Arsenal

TH14 wants to come home!

FC Barcelona v Seattle Sounders FC

Henry spent eight successful years at Arsenal after Wenger signed him from Juventus back in 1999.
At the time Henry was a winger and, after an unsuccessful year spent at Juve, eyebrows were raised when Wenger splashed out £11m to sign the France international.

However, Wenger took Henry under his wing and transformed him from a struggling wide player into one of the most prolific strikers to have played in the Premier League.
He scored a record 226 goals in 364 appearances for Arsenal before moving to Barcelona, but Henry, 32, admits his heart will always belong to the Gunners.
He said: “I’m trying to finish what I started nearly 15 years ago but we will see. I always said you go back to where you belong. I never stopped saying I love Arsenal and I will one day go back there.
“How? I don’t now. Maybe as a water boy. Who knows? I just love the club and eventually one day I will go back for sure.
“It was always a pleasure to play and train with Wenger. He is a great human being on top of everything. I’ll be honest, I really don’t see Arsenal without Wenger.
“Before I came to Arsenal I was very down but Arsene Wenger was there and he knows how the game should be played and the rest, as they say, is history.
“He only knows how much time he invested in me and many others. I still talk to him and watch Arsenal on TV.” (Telegraph)

This is interesting news, one hopes that any return he does make would be sooner rather than later. Having won everything he can at the Nou Camp perhaps he would be keen on making a return trip to the Emirates. The guy is a legend and he clearly loves the club, which is cool as we all love him. He still has a few years in the tank and clearly hasn’t lost his hunger for the game or his eye for goal and if he were to make it clear that he wished to leave Barca for north London he would make a lot of people very happy indeed and a lot of Premier League defenders would have be on their toes.
