The 34 year old steered a vital goal for the Gunners in the 90th minute and scored the 229th goal of his illustrious Arsenal career. Henry’s short-term loan spell comes to an end against AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday, despite Wenger’s hopes to keep hold of the striker. The victory lifted Arsenal to fourth in the table and Henry has scored three goals in the six appearances made on his loan spell.
Henry has refused to rule out a return to Arsenal and the Frenchman has revealed that he felt like a child when scoring the winner at the Stadium of Light. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has praised Henry’s impact at the Emirates Stadium and the Frenchman revealed he over-celebrated to give his thanks to the Arsenal fans.
The New York Red Bulls striker said: ‘I stayed a bit longer with the Arsenal fans, because I knew it was my last game in the Premier League so I wanted to say “Thanks, that’s it”. I felt like the kid who just come on and scored his first goal for the club he loves but, when it comes to Arsenal, I always feel something special. The most important thing was three points whether I was in the team or not’.
