Give Henry time, urges Wenger

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger has warned Arsenal fans not to expect Gunners legend Thierry Henry to hit the ground running after returning to the club on a short-term loan.

The 34-year-old will go straight into the squad for Monday'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 the visit of Tottenham on February 26.

Wenger said: "Thierry will be involved against Leeds, but at the moment 90 minutes is a bit long for him because he has not played for a long time. He works hard, but he is a bit behind physically. In one or two weeks Thierry will be fine."
