Thierry Henry has sensationally re-signed for Arsenal on a two-month loan deal after insurance details with New York Red Bulls were finally resolved.
The 34-year-old Frenchman had been using the club’s London Colney facilities for the past several weeks during the MLS off-season, before signing on the dotted line which will see him at Arsenal until February.
‘It is unreal to be honest. But when it comes to Arsenal my heart will always do the talking.
‘Once I knew the plan behind it I was OK with it. I am not coming here to be a hero or prove anything. I am just coming here to help. People have to understand that. Marouane and Gervinho are going to the Africa Cup of Nations, so I was asked to fill in the gap.
‘It is a loan deal and I’ll be on the bench most of the time. If I can make the bench that is! The Boss has a team here already who are doing something good. I am just going to be part of the squad.’
