Wenger: Henry can add to his legend

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger believes Thierry Henry could deepen his legendary status at Arsenal after returning on a short-term loan deal from New York Red Bulls.

The 34-year-old former Gunners captain will go straight into the squad for Monday night's FA Cup third-round clash against Leeds at the start of a six-and-a-half-week spell which will take in games against Manchester United, AC Milan and possibly even the visit of Tottenham on February 26.

Henry became Arsenal's record goalscorer during eight trophy-laden seasons with the north-London club before leaving to join Barcelona in 2007 and Wenger believes Henry's return can only be good for all involved. He said: "You cannot take away from people what they have done, and what he has delivered will stay forever."
