Bixente Lizarazu has questioned former France teammate Thierry Henry's decision to return to Arsenal.
Henry has signed on a two-month loan from New York Red Bulls.
Lizarazu remarked: "He is a legendary player for Arsenal. I do not know if you can rewrite history. He made history with Arsenal, today he is in the United States. The past is the past, he cannot rewrite history.
"He cannot become the Thierry Henry he was. He was a fantastic player and that player is no longer there. Now, perhaps his desire is simply to lend a hand or at this time is what Arsenal need. But I do not know what drives him."
