Henry - It Would Feel 'Weird' To Draw Gunners

Henry - It Would Feel 'Weird' To Draw Gunners

Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry, says he'd feel a little weird should his current club, Barcelona, draw the love of his life, Arsenal in the quarter finals of the Champions League.

Arsenal's all time record goal scorer spent 8 happy and successful years in North London, forming an unbreakable bond with the city and fans at the same time. The former Arsenal captain once famously said that he felt so at home at Arsenal and in London that he began to think in English rather than his native French.

His love for the club leaves him feeling apprehensive ahead of todays quarter final draw.

'Of course it would be special to draw Arsenal. Everyone knows that. It will be a really weird feeling if we get them because of the love I have for the club and the fans.'

'I haven't had the chance to go back to The Emirates to watch a game since I joined Barcelona.'

'We play on Sunday quite often in Spain and with training the day before and Champions League matches as well it has not been possible to get there. A lot of people are still there from my time at Arsenal - not just players but people behind the scenes who make it such a great club.'

Drawing Barcelona would not only be another fantastic chapter in Arsenal's European journey, but it would also give all Gooners a chance to show their appreciation to one of the greatest players ever to wear the red and white of Arsenal ....... but can't we save it for the final?

I've got mixed feelings about this one. I would love to get the chance to cheer Thierry again, but I would be devastated if he scored against us.

I hear you Dave. But if anyone had to put us out of the Champions League I couldn't think of a better player to do it.
