With Thierry Henry bringing his sojourn in the Big Apple to a close and bidding ‘adieu’ to the New York Red Bulls, his future is still wide open.
The record goalscorer of the French national team has yet to confirm his full retirement from football – indeed he’s been deliberately vague about it – which has led to all sorts of speculation: will he keep playing? Will he move straight into coaching?
In his first media appearance since losing out in the MLS playoffs and hanging up his boots, Henry made clear his wish to return to Arsenal…but as a player or a coach?
Asked about the possibility of an Arsenal return, Henry replied:
“Christmas is arriving soon, so it’s a wish.
“It’s a wish. Its not something that’s going to happen like this, but it is a wish.”
“I do think I still can play.’
It’s all a bit blurry right now. “It’s only a day. We will see what happens.”
As for the New York Red Bulls, Henry said he’ll always hold a place in his heart for the MLS franchise, and would like to keep in touch:
“I will come back and watch some games — if they let me come back and watch some games.
“I feel like I can come back here and watch some games and be part of the team.
