New York Red Bulls invited to 2011 Emirates Cup
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry could be back at the club sooner than expected, as his New York Red Bull side consider an invitation to the 2011 Emirates Cup competition.
According to the Washington Post, the MLS giants “have been considered for an invitation but nothing is set in stone”, although their participation looks likely with no matches scheduled for the usual tournament dates in late July.
The Emirates Cup has been hugely successful since Arsenal staged the inaugural tournament back in 2007 and it’s now recognised as one of the world’s most prestigious pre-season tournaments.
More information on Arsenal’s pre-season tours, with Malaysia being touted as a likely destination, will be released towards the end of the season.
