Arsenal's Koscielny: Henry is training like he is 20!

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has revealed that Thierry Henry is running around at training like he is 20 years old again.

The 34-year old French veteran, on loan from New York Red Bulls, has grabbed the headlines this week after returning to the Gunners line-up to score the winner in the FA Cup third round against Leeds United on Monday and his teammates are astounded by his energy around the club, particularly Koscielny.

"He is leading by example, we saw it on Monday night," Koscielny told Arsenal's official website.

"At training, he runs everywhere. It's like he is 20 years old.

"It's thanks to players like him that we all improve. He is one of the greatest players to have played football and the squad needs to look up to him in the next two months to improve.

"Maybe he has missed the atmosphere here, at the club and the stadium. We can see at training that he plays like if he was 20 and as if he had just broken into the first team.

"He wants to score, to help the team and to improve."
