Thierry Henry is “a pleasure” to have around London Colney, according to Arsène Wenger.

The New York Red Bulls striker is currently training with the Club to maintain his fitness in the MLS off-season after completing his second campaign in the United States.

Wenger says that Arsenal’s record goalscorer is welcome back any time.

“I think it is an honour and a pleasure [to have him around],” he said. “An honour because he is a legend at the Club and he is coming back, a pleasure because when he is on the football pitch, he is still a great player.

“He will come and join us a few times. Normally he enjoys it to come back to European football and to come back to his club. He will come back normally for training.

“His future is in the States,” he added. “He is going back in February. Until then we will just help him to practice and keep fit.”
