Henry: “The feeling I had when I scored was amazing”

Thierry Henry made a fairytale return to Arsenal on Monday night, scoring the winning goal against Leeds in the FA Cup third-round clash at Emirates Stadium.

The 34-year-old, who is Arsenal’s top goalscorer with 227 goals, came on as a second-half substitute with the match still deadlocked, and with 12 minutes to go, finished superbly with just his fifth touch of he ball.

“It is unreal,” Henry told ESPN. “Since I came back from holiday I did not think I would play for Arsenal again, now I score a winner.

“I love the club. I don’t know what I can say. I just wanted to help and hopefully I can do more.

“The feeling that I had when I scored was amazing. Scoring a goal when you support a team, now I know what it is like for the guys who played for Manchester United, Chelsea to score for the club you support.

“It is a wonderful opportunity. It is important because you do not know when you will get another one. It was important I took it.”

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted in his post-match press conference that the Frenchman could be used upfront alongside Robin van Persie for Sunday’s away trip to Swansea.

However, Francis Coquelin won’t be available for the weekend’s game after suffering a hamstring injury during the win over Leeds, ruling him out for “a few weeks” while Johan Djourou should be back following suspension according to Wenger.

    You can’t put a price on composure. How many times do our strikers and midfielders, except RVP get a head rush when in similar positions?

  11. WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHUUUUUUUUUU,am happy, not only b/c we won the game but also the one who made us win is our lovely old boy legend, I think the young players saw the way and the skill used by Thierry in scoring, he was calm with greater skill without rush,gently,with skill watched how the goalkeep stayed he kicked and score, Asharvin, Ramsey and OX lost alot of chances, I think if they could calm down and with skill they could have more than 8 goals…………..they must now use opportunity of learning while Henry is still there…I lv Henry vey much, I screamed much after goal…wenger was and is happy too, b/c he hsa proved himself professor.
