Thierry Henry has left MLS side, New York Red Bulls after 4-and-a-half years at the club BBC Sport have revealed.

The 37-year-old departs the club with 122 appearances for the Red Bulls, scoring 51 goals. Henry said he will now take some time to decipher what to do next with his career.

“The decision has always been that I would leave after the duration of my contract,” Frenchman Henry said. “I’ll take the next few weeks to decide on the next chapter of my career.”

With a soft spot for Arsenal, rumours have suggested that the Gunners legend will make a return to the Emirates. However, what capacity that would entail no-one is certain of. One thing is for sure, Henry would like to see Arsenal win the Champions League one day and says he owes it to the club.

“One thing is certain: I will stay in football, as a coach, a consultant or executive. We will see.

“The second certainty is that I would love to see Arsenal win the Champions League. Whether that is from near or far does not depend on me, but it is sure I’d like to help. This is my club and, as a player, I was not able to give them the Champions League.”

Still got it despite his age, will Henry set out for one last playing venture or will he try his hand behind the scenes in football?
