Arsenal are planning for life without Thierry Henry - and officially have not got a player to take his shirt at the Emirates Stadium.

Henry left for Barcelona last month and although boss Arsene Wenger has bought Eduardo Da Silva to supplement his attack, no player has been given the number 14 shirt of the Gunners talisman.

Retiring his shirt has been the buzz of Arsenal fans since his departure to mark his contribution to the club, in the same way AC Milan plan to pay tribute to Paolo Maldini when he stops playing.

Henry's attachment to 14 stretches to his charity work outside football, and he has launched the "The One 4 Foundation" supporting projects against racism and social inequality.
