Thierry Henry caught wearing Spurs hat

Thierry Henry is no longer playing competitive football after he announced his decision to leave New York Red Bulls. Cue rumours that the Arsenal legend is set to return to the north London club in which he made his name. However, after seeing this video, some Gunners fans might not want Henry back.

Henry has been plying his trade across the pond since 2010 so it is no surprise to see the 37-year-old has plenty of connections in the US. Those connections allowed him to enter the changing room of NBA side San Antonio Spurs and entitled him to some rather unfortunate memorabilia.

While the hat is clearly one of the San Antonio variety from the front, looking at it from the back reveals what appears to be an unfortunate clash of nicknames. From one's perspective, it appears as though Henry is wearing a wooly hat from the Tottenham Hotspur Christmas catalogue.

Barring perhaps Manchester United–and maybe not even then–there is no worse hat that Henry could pull off without causing an uproar at the Emirates. It's certainly a hat he won't want to bring with him if he does return to London Colney to take up a coaching role as expected.

Expected return 

Arsene Wenger already confirmed that he expects Arsenal's record goal scorer to return to the club at some point while Henry has admitted the chance to be involved with the Gunners would be a 'dream'.

Wenger told reporters: "He has the right to reflect and think of what he wants to do now.

"He is an Arsenal man. The best moment of his life and career has been experienced here.

"Certainly one day he will come back here. In what kind of role, I don't know.

"He has to think about what kind of direction he wants to give to his next life."
