Former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira has backed the Gunners to overcome the loss of star striker Thierry Henry to Barcelona.

Vieira, now with Inter Milan, admits Henry´s exit is a "big blow" to the north London club, but the France midfielder feels just as Arsene Wenger managed to replace fans´ favourite Ian Wright by bringing in Henry, he will find the right player to succeed Henry.

Vieira told Feel Football: "Thierry Henry is a huge player and it is a big blow for the club to lose him, certainly. I know how it feels to leave Arsenal, and it is hard. But this has happened before at Arsenal, losing big players through the years, and the club always comes back."
