Thierry Henry London, Jan 10 (IANS) Frenchman Thierry Henry made a sensational return to Arsenal as his 78th minute goal against Leeds United took the London club into the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Henry, the Gunner’s leading scorer joined Barcelona in 2007 and was transferred to MLS side New York Bulls just three years later.

The 34-year-old, back on two-month loan, made a dream start after he came off the bench and gave Arsenal the lead with a typical far post finish that Henry had become synonymous for in his eight-year stint at the club.

“It was a little bit of a dream, because it was a story about football you would tell some young children,” Wenger was quoted as saying by ESPN Soccernet. “Unfortunately it is not often like that in our game, but sometimes it happens.

“When he got in that position I thought ‘oh, that’s your angle’, but it was a bit too close. That is where he surprised me.”

“He still didn’t force the shot, he still made it look easy. At the start I thought he was too much on the left, but he had that special finishing that he has shown tonight. That was the Thierry Henry finishing.”
