Thierry Henry, fuming at the Premier League for taking that goal against Blackburn off him, has vowed to return to the Premier League to score that all important 229th goal for the club.
Well, not really, even if the Dubious Goals Panel are a pack of spoilsports, but the club’s record goalscorer has hinted at returning to the club in a coaching capacity.
At almost 35 years of age the likelihood of him playing for us again is remote (yeah, we know he’s better than Chamakh and Park put together to form a Dr Moreau hybrid Parmakh beast), which leaves open the tantilising prospect of Henry the coach and, who knows, manager Thierry.
Speaking ahead of New York Red Bulls clash with the insufferably despicable Chelsea, Tezza said, “I would like to go back to England with Arsenal for sure.
“I wasn’t planning to go back to play last season. It was only because Gervinho and Chamakh went to the African Nations Cup. I was there to train and they asked me if I wanted to play. Who knows what might happen in the future?
“I’ve not yet spoken to Arsene about it so I don’t know what capacity I could go back in.
“Coaching does interest me but I don’t know what my talent is going to be after I have finished my career. But I will go back to Arsenal.”
It’s true that great players don’t always make great managers, but how nice would it be if Henry was one of the exceptions to that rule.
Two seasons in a row unbeaten, that should do it.
