Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger wants to go all out on Thierry Henry and make the most of the two months the French striker has to spend on the Emirates Stadium before returning to MLS side NY Red Bulls.
The French manager is going to use Henry in the Champions League as well and has already made plans to add him to the Champions League squad.
“Yes, he will be [in the squad],” said the Frenchman. “I have given Vito Mannone out on loan to Hull and Thierry will take his place.
“He has good memories of playing in Milan, where he scored three goals against Inter Milan. It is logical [to include him].”
Henry has two months to prove his worth once again to the Gunners, and if he still has anything to prove he’s expected to do so starting with the match against Leeds United from the FA Cup when Arsene Wenger will want to rest some of the most important players in the squad and use those who haven’t been playing too much lately.
Henry is the first transfer of the winter for Arsenal but might not be the last as Wenger plans to bring another striker who might stay for a more lengthy period with the Gunners.
