Thierry Henry to play Arsenal with New York Red Bulls
Thursday 28 April 2011
Thierry Henry is set to return to Arsenal this summer with the New York Red Bulls confirmed as part of the line-up for pre-season Emirates Cup.
Paris St Germain and Boca Juniors will also join the Gunners in the two-day tournament on July 30-31.
Henry, 33, is in his first full season with the Red Bulls after joining last summer from Barcelona.
Although he left for Barca in 2007, Henry remains close to Arsenal, where he is the club's all-time top scorer, and trained with the Gunners this winter during the MLS off-season.
Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis said: "New York Red Bulls, Boca Juniors and Paris Saint-Germain are three clubs with great players and huge followings, and they are sure to make Emirates Cup 2011 a hugely exciting weekend of football.
"Also, I'm sure all Arsenal fans will be looking forward to welcoming back Thierry Henry - a true Arsenal legend."
