ESPN is reporting that Thierry Henry has admitted that he would love to return to Arsenal in the future, whether that be as a player or a coach.
The Frenchman – who is currently playing for the New York Red Bulls – returned to Arsenal for a loan spell last season and this is something he would love to repeat.
With the close season of the MLS combining with a busy spell in the Premier League, Henry could perhaps agree a similar deal if both clubs can agree.
Speaking about the possibility, Henry said: “I would like to go back to England with Arsenal for sure.”
“I was there to train and they asked me if I wanted to play. Who knows what might happen in the future?”
Henry made a famous return to Arsenal of course, scoring the winning goal against Leeds United in the Carling Cup after coming on as a substitute.
He then scored one more goal in this short spell – the winning goal at Sunderland – and he perhaps showed enough to convince people he can still perform at the top level.
In terms of Henry returning to the club as a player, it all depends on the circumstances Arsenal find themselves in. They would arguably hope they are doing well enough not to call upon Henry again.
However, with regards to Henry returning to the club in some capacity in the future, that seems almost certain.
