Wenger reveals Arsenal plan new tribute to Henry

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says they're planning a new tribute for Thierry Henry following his retirement this week.

There is already a bronze statue of Henry, who returned for a short loan spell from New York in January 2012, outside the Emirates Stadium.

Wenger, though, suggested France also needed to properly honour one of Les Bleus greatest ever players, who netted 51 goals in 123 appearances, winning the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000.

The Arsenal manager said: "We will organise something in his honour and I hope the France team will also give him the recognition that he deserves.

"We cannot just end it like this. He deserves a proper tribute. It is very important."
