Thierry Henry spoke yesterday of how he missed life in London, and how he likes the atmosphere at BarÁa.
Henry was quoted in the Daily mail saying, 'I miss London a lot and always will. It's a great city, I had a great life there. I lived eight years there and it's not something I can forget just like that. I am having to play myself back into form because of the amount of games I missed and it will take time.
'I played eight seasons without missing anything. It was a shock to the system to not play for six months and coming back has not been easy, but I am starting to feel better.
'The pain is going away and I felt sharper for the first time against Real Zaragoza a couple of weeks ago. It's been a long time since I felt like that.
'The atmosphere is good at Barcelona. It is like a family and reminds me of Arsenal.'
The former Gunners skipper, and player-who should-have-been-voted-the-world's-best (on three occasions...) also said he plans to come back to say a proper goodbye to the Arsenal, expanding thus,
'I think I will try and do it in December because we have a winter break in Spain and I will have the time.
'I would rather go back in a non-playing situation and be able to enjoy it. I don't want to get drawn against Arsenal in the Champions League this season. That would not be a proper way to say goodbye to the fans.
'When I go I will probably just sit in the stands. I won't walk out on the pitch or anything like that.
'The focus should be on the team and I don't want to draw any attention away from them and what they're doing. They will be playing a game and I want to respect that.'
And that's good to hear. Not that Titi plans to come back and say 'hi'. I mean the whole 'not interfering in the playing side' thing. That's what we need to do - stay focused, and block out all outside interferences. We've got a title to challenge for (amongst other things). There's plenty of time for reminiscing and all that malarkey when we're celebrating a trophy.
All the same though, it's nice that 'the-artist-formerly-known-as-TH14' wants to come and re-acquaint himself with the best football played in Europe, eh?
