The Arsenal football manager Arsene Wenger says Thierry Henry will enhance his legendary status at the English Premier League club.

The New York Red Bulls striker has rejoined the Gunners on a two-month loan deal.

The club's all-time leading goalscorer has been training with the Londoners since the close of the MLS season in November and recently had a statue of him unveiled at the Emirates Stadium.

Wenger believes Henry's return will be win-win for both Arsenal and the player.

He says he expects Henry's performances to "just make the statue a bit bigger. Let us hope he will do that."
