Arsenal legend vows to return

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has vowed to return to the club in some capacity once he finishes his playing career.

There were reports at the turn of the year that the Gunners’ record goalscorer was set for a second loan spell this year after doing so last January.

It did not materialise and the New York Red Bulls star insisted he was concentrating on his final two years in MLS.

However, Henry was clear about what he wanted to do after that and claimed his “heart” was calling out for a return to Arsenal.

Henry insisted his desire to take up a role, any role, at Emirates Stadium did not mean it was definitely going to happen and accepted the decision was ultimately out of his hands.

“All I know is that I will be involved in the game for sure and hopefully be involved with Arsenal because that is the heart talking there, that's the team that I support," he said in an interview with Reuters.

“Forget about me as a player, that's the team I support.

"In any type or shape, if I can go back to the club I would love to do it, but it's not up to me.

“That would be a desire, more a desire than something that can be officialised, I still have two years playing here and then I will see.

“But I would definitely love to be back with Arsenal.”

Henry is not the only former ‘Invincible’ to express a desire to return to the club they took to greatness under Arsene Wenger.

The former France international’s old strike partner at Highbury, Dennis Bergkamp, recently admitted to being open to a coaching role of some sort at Arsenal, though he is currently occupied with being assistant to Ajax manager Frank de Boer.
