Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger declared that even though Henry is a club legend and Anelka was important for Arsenal at a certain point, there’s no way either of the two would have the chance to play for the Gunners again at their advanced age.
“As for Nicolas Anelka and Thierry Henry, I would say ‘No’.
“I am told Anelka has signed for a club in Shanghai and Henry goes to a training camp with New York Red Bulls on 15th January.”
Arsenal publically announced Henry in the ceremony before the Everton match that everybody wants him to come back, but people want him to come back as an assistant manager not as a player. Even though he was a great part of the Gunners and he was the best striker the club had in its history, Henry won’t be coming back to play unfortunately.
