Arsenal will not be signing Henry again says Wenger

Arsene Wenger has put an end to the speculation over a possible third spell at Arsenal for the 35-year old French striker Thierry Henry. The former Gunner and goal machine has been training with the Arsenal players during the off season from his club, New York Red Bulls, in the American MLS.

The Arsenal manager had kept the possibility open, but had suggested that a another loan move at the Emirates might be one time too many for Henry. He did well for us last year, scoring the winning goal in two matches, but Wenger would not want him to struggle. When asked specifically whether there was still a chance he might play for Arsenal again, Wenger gave the simple reply, “No.”

Arsenal may not get Henry but that may be a Good Thing!

Why Theirry Henry not joining Arsenal could be a good thing by KJ

I hope everyone had a merry Christmas yesterday. It’s good to have one day where you can forget about the rest of the world (including Arsenal!). However, it’s back to business and news is breaking that Wenger isn’t looking to sign Henry on loan this year. This is definitely a big surprise, as previously we were expecting him to definitely come on loan and possibly extend that to the end of the Premier League season. However, Wenger seeks to quash those rumours with his recent quotes:

Thierry Henry coming back to Arsenal BUT for How Long?

Thierry Henry is set to have an amazing third stint as an Arsenal player after the Gunners concluded an agreement with the French striker’s club New York Red Bulls. The MLS team will not start playing football again until March, and Henry will be an Arsenal player from January 1st for an initial six week period.

That period could be extended, and the Sun reports that it could even last for the whole of the Premier league season. Henry has already trained with the Arsenal squad, and his fitness and sharpness are greatly improved from his loan spell last season, so Wenger feels he could have more of an impact in the Premier league. His winning mentality, experience and love of Arsenal could also be a massive boost to the other players.

Arshavin move to Zenit back on?

Andrey Arshavin has been on loan at Zenit St Petersberg for the last six months, but after his performances at the Euros (and his post-tournament comments) looked like he had blown any chance of returning to his boyhood club, especially when Zenit’s owner Valery Golubev declared: “How can a citizen of Russia treat the honour of his country like that?

“He should be deported.”

But now it seems that the manager of the club, Luciano Spalletti, has completely contradicted the words of his boss, saying: “He is one of the players who can strengthen Zenit. When a team win the league by almost 15 points you need to look for players like that.”

The Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has certainly made an immediate impact on the American MLS and he has finally bagged his first goal for the New York Red Bulls.

The Red Bulls were dire last season and hadn’t won an away game in two full seasons before this one, but the arrival of Henry, and Rafael Marquez, this summer has seen them flying in second place in the Eastern Conference. They are looking certainties for the play-offs and have been improving rapidly lately, winning three of their last four games.

Beckham – Thierry Henry will make the MLS bigger, and I can’t wait to play against him!

The original ambassador for the American MLS, David Beckham, believes that the arrival of Thierry Henry at the New York Bulls can only be good for football in America, and he will raise the profile of the sport even further.

“I think it’s great,” Beckham said in an interview with Yahoo. “Thierry joining the Red Bulls is great. I knew that he was interested in coming to the MLS because we’ve talked many a time about it and I’ve known for a while certain things,”

Thierry Henry joins New York Red Bulls!

Thierry Henry has been playing fourth fiddle for most of this season at Barcelona, which is no surprise considering they have Lionel Messi, Zlatan Ibrahamovich and Bojan Krkic in the team, but no longer!

The ex-Golden Boot winner will turn 33 in August, but he has no intention of hanging up his boots just yet. He is now set to take over the ambassadorial duties, from David Beckham, for the MLS when the World Cup finishes in July. It has been confirmed that Henry has signed a contract with the New York Red Bulls on a playing and promotional contract, which will see him playing alongside the ex-Aston Villa star Juan Pablo Angel. This will also finish any further rumours that he may have been rejoining Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.
