Video: Arsenal legend Thierry Henry proves that he hasn't lost any of the old magic with a wonder strike in MLS
Thierry Henry could have solved Arsenal’s striker woes this summer after the Gunners legend proved that he hasn’t lost any of the magic in the MLS on Saturday.
The Arsenal captain, who won the World Cup in 1998, scored a brilliant 51st-minute strike to help current side New York Red Bulls seal a 2-1 victory over Kansas City.
The 37-year-old forward received the ball on the edge of the area before beating two defenders and powering a right-footed strike into the top corner of the Kansas net.
Whilst his strike against Kansas proved that Henry is still capable of moments of brilliance, former Gunners midfielder Ray Parlour hopes to see his old team-mate in charge of Arsenal in the future.
“At the moment I’m sticking with Arsene Wenger [for Arsenal manager],” Parlour wrote on Sportlobster.
“One day they’ll need one and I reckon someone in the mould of Martinez would work well.
“I’d love to see Dennis Bergkamp in the setup and I think Thierry Henry would make an incredible manager, he’s very intelligent.”
Henry is Arsenal’s all-time record goal-scorer after 228 goals in all competitions.
