Thierry Henry is still a major threat on the football pitch, according to Arsène Wenger.

The Arsenal legend scored a record 226 goals during a glittering career in North London and helped Barcelona to a famous treble last season. However, although Henry scored 45 goals in his first two seasons at the Nou Camp, he has only netted three times in the current campaign.

The striker has been in and out of the Barcelona team as a result but is expected to figure at some point when his new club takes on his old club in the Champions League at Emirates Stadium. And Wenger will not treat Henry lightly.

"He is still a threat because he is an exceptional talent," said the manager. [He is a] very intelligent talent as well.

"We are happy to see him back at the Emirates and he will get the warm welcome that he deserves. And when the game starts it will be a Quarter-Final of the Champions League where we will of course give everything to beat him."
