Red Bulls' Henry staying fit with former club Arsenal

New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry is still a legend in North London, home of his former club Arsenal. And now he's back, at least for a short while.

[inline_node:326195]The Red Bulls DP has just started a training stint with Arsenal, the Premier League club for whom he scored 226 goals in eight seasons, from 1999 to 2007. Arsenal's official website stated on Monday that it was a "short-term arrangement [that] will help Henry maintain his fitness ahead of the new MLS campaign."

Henry joined the Red Bulls from FC Barcelona midway through the 2010 season. The 33-year-old French international made 12 appearances and scored two goals, but struggled with a knee injury late in the year and was able to play only six minutes in the two-game playoff series with the San Jose Earthquakes.
