Thierry Henry will not play for Arsenal again this season.

The French striker damaged groin and stomach muscles in Wednesday's 1-1 draw with PSV Eindhoven and, as a consequence, will miss the next three months of domestic and international football. Arsenal hope to have him back to full fitness for the start of the 2007-08 campaign.

"Thierry Henry will be out for a minimum of three months," said Arsène Wenger on Friday afternoon.

"Unfortunately this means he will now miss the rest of this season both domestically and internationally, but we are confident that he will be ready for the start of next season."
