Arsenal skipper Van Persie: Henry already working well with young players

Arsenal skipper Robin van Persie says new signing Thierry Henry is already having a big impact.

Van Persie is also confident that Henry will prove a positive influence on the younger members of the Arsenal squad.

"It will be good for everyone. It is a massive joy to play and train with him. I am excited too. It's like, 'oh yes, Thierry is back, let's have fun'," he told

"The younger guys are all looking up to him. Everyone is sharing that feeling. Before the [QPR] game I saw him speaking to Francis Coquelin with the ball, showing him how to run. He is doing a great job already."
