Henry not ruling out return to Arsenal

London: Thierry Henry has admitted he would consider returning to Arsenal possibly as a coach after his career has finished.

The 34-year old, who now plays for New York Red Bulls, enjoyed a successful spell on loan at the Gunners in January last season during the MLS off-season.

The Frenchman is unsure if there will be a repeat of this next season, but revealed there could be a return to north London in the future as a coach.

"I don`t know how, it depends," Henry was quoted as saying by The Telegraph. "Seriously, I don`t know. I just want to finish my career [first]. I would go back to England, for sure, with Arsenal. Coaching does interest me but I really don`t think about it right now.

"I don`t plan to go back [again to play for Arsenal] and I didn`t plan to go back and play last time.

"It was only because of the guys [strikers Gervinho and Marouanne Chamakh] went to the African Cup of Nations. They asked if I wanted to play, and that`s it. I was there to train."

Henry also refused to discuss the future of former team-mate Robin van Persie as he looks set to leave the Emirates.

He added: "I`ve nothing to say about it. They have to deal with it and that`s just the way it is...It`s a hard one. I don`t want to get involved into this kind of thing.”

"It`s a tricky one but obviously I don`t know what`s happening. It`s difficult for me to talk about it."
