New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry has revealed (yet again) that he really really really wants to return to Arsenal after his playing career ends, and the former Highbury legend admitted that he would be willing to shovel sh*te (metaphorically) in order to get his foot in the door.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Henry said;
“When I retire, I don’t know how, I want to come back to Arsenal. I have just come to New York to play and to compete and win another title.
After everything is done then I will think about it. But whatever it is, I want to come back to Arsenal – maybe as a water boy – I just love this club.”
The former France international was also quizzed about his former Arsenal teammate Cesc Fabregas‘ ongoing transfer ordeal, and replied with the kind of non-comitance that can only be achieved through years of gruelling professional media training;
“It is hard because the guy is from Barcelona. I wouldn’t like to be in his shoes, that’s all I can say. I wouldn’t like to be in his position because he is from there and he loves Arsenal.
I don’t know what to say about this, because I don’t want to talk for him, but as an Arsenal fan, for me, I want him to stay, but I would also understand if he goes back home.”
