Henry not ruling out return to Arsenal

The former Gunners striker is tight-lipped on returning to the Emirates and also refuses to be drawn on the speculation surrounding the future of Robin van Persie
Thierry Henry has admitted he would consider returning to Arsenal possibly as a coach after his career has finished.

The 34-year old, who now plays for New York Red Bulls, enjoyed a successful spell on loan at the Gunners in January last season during the MLS off-season.

The Frenchman is unsure if there will be a repeat of this next season, but revealed there could be a return to north London in the future as a coach.

"I don't know how, it depends," Henry was quoted as saying by The Telegraph. "Seriously, I don't know. I just want to finish my career [first]. I would go back to England, for sure, with Arsenal. Coaching does interest me but I really don't think about it right now.

"I don't plan to go back [again to play for Arsenal] and I didn't plan to go back and play last time.

"It was only because of the guys [strikers Gervinho and Marouanne Chamakh] went to the African Cup of Nations. They asked if I wanted to play, and that's it. I was there to train."

Henry also refused to discuss the future of former team-mate Robin van Persie as he looks set to leave the Emirates.

He added: "I've nothing to say about it. They have to deal with it and that's just the way it is...It's a hard one. I don't want to get involved into this kind of thing.

"It's a tricky one but obviously I don't know what's happening. It's difficult for me to talk about it."
