NY Red Bull Thierry Henry Training With Arsenal During MLS Offseason
Thierry Henry will train with his former club, Arsenal, as he prepares for the 2011 MLS season. Henry, who joined the New York Red Bulls last summer, will likely return to the United States in February or early March. It’s a similar situation to David Beckham as both will train with EPL sides but return in time for the 2011 MLS season.
Below is the official statement from the Arsenal FC website on the story.
The Gunners legend returned to London Colney on Monday to train with Arsène Wenger’s squad. The short-term arrangement will help Henry maintain his fitness ahead of the new MLS campaign, which begins in March.
Henry joined the New York Red Bulls last year and helped them reach the play-offs where they lost on aggregate to San Jose Earthquakes in November.
The former Arsenal captain scored a record 226 goals during a glittering career in north London and was a member of the ‘Invincibles’ squad that completed an unbeaten campaign in 2003/04.
