Thierry Henry
Henry has described how he joined Arsenal.

Arsenal's record goalscorer Thierry Henry had outlined how he first agreed a move to north London after meeting with manager Arsene Wenger on the plane.

In a new documentary entitled 'Arsenal Legends - Thierry Henry' which premiered at the Emirates Stadium and is available on iTunes, the French forward has revealed how a conversation with Arsene Wenger sparked his move to north London.

"Sometimes destiny is weird," he said. "After the last Juve game, I went back to Paris, I was on the plane and the boss was on the plane and that's when I told him I would love to join Arsenal and that's what happened.

He added: "You don't arrive at Arsenal football club when you have the likes of Tony Adams and Martin Keown, Lee [Dixon], Nigel [Winterburn], David Seaman, Ray Parlour. Before I arrived that team had won the double, some of them even won that amazing league title in '89.

"Even though I arrived as a world champion I was nobody, and rightly so. I didn't do anything. I hadn't won anything so who was I to do anything or act in a different way? I was just a follower at the beginning."

Henry went on to become one of Arsenal's greatest ever players, scoring 228 goals in 377 games across two spells at the club, breaking the all-time goalscoring record held by Ian Wright.

To mark the club's 125th anniversary, Arsenal erected statues of Henry, former manager Herbert Chapman and ex-skipper Adams, such was the significant contribution the forward made during his initial eight-year spell.

The current New York Red Bulls man made seven appearances during a temporary loan spell at Arsenal in 2012 but despite training with the club alongside former winger Robert Pires during the MLS off-season there are no plans to see him pen a deal in the New Year for a third spell with The Gunners.
