Thierry Henry rejoins Arsenal on a short-term loan deal, the English premier league side has confirmed.
“After negotiations between Arsenal, Henry, the New York Red Bulls and Major League Soccer, the striker will team up with the Gunners on a temporary basis during a period of fixtures in January and February that will see Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh depart for Africa Cup of Nations duty,” Arsenal said January 6, 2012 on its website.
Arsenal’s Coach Arsène Wenger, said on the club’s website that “I am very happy. It was my desire and Thierry’s desire. We will have Thierry for January and in February. Then he will go back to the United States. I am sure during these two months he will be a massive asset to the team in the dressing room and on the pitch. He can be relaxed, not under too much pressure and be a tremendous help to the team.”
An excited Henry said “They say love is blind, but it is difficult for me to say no to Arsenal.”
Henry initially joined Arsenal from Juventus in August 1999.
