Arsene Wenger backed Thierry Henry to enhance his legendary status at Arsenal after the New York Red Bulls striker rejoined the Gunners on a two-month loan deal on Friday. The 34-year-old has been training with the Londoners since the close of the MLS season in November.

Wenger believes the Frenchman’s return will be win-win for both Arsenal and Henry.

"You cannot take away from people what they have done, and what he has delivered will stay forever," Wenger said. "Thierry is a world-class player and is a good addition because he knows the club, he knows the league, and it is only positive.”
