Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replicates iconic Thierry Henry goal

There's plenty of buzz around Arsenal today, and not just about their impending showdown against Manchester United this afternoon.

That's because Arsene Wenger has suggested that Thierry Henry could well be on his way back to north London. That's right Arsenal fans, the king is returning.


However it's not likely to be as a player, instead the French striker could become part of Wenger's coaching staff. "It's not impossible. I welcome people who have played for us to come back but not (for just) an honorary job," the Arsenal boss admitted.

"It has to be a job that is available and one where you get up in the morning and do something. Has he the quality to be a manager? Yes, but he has to decide to sacrifice his life.


"He has to learn the job first. I have seen so many who have the qualities and they have not survived their first job because they are not ready."

In honour of the great man, and Arsenal's impending showdown against Manchester United, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlin has stepped up to film a special video for the Gunners. Any Arsenal fan worth their salt will remember Henry's iconic volley against Red Devils in 2000, and now the current Arsenal star has had a go at replicating perhaps the most famous of Henry's record 228 strikes.

Can he pull it off?

Oxlade-Chamberlin, who will be hoping for a starting spot this afternoon when Manchester United rock up at the Emirates Stadium, manages to pull off the difficult technique - but pushes himself to replicate the wonderstrike exactly - with mixed results.

Check out the video below!
