Remembering Thierry Henry’s favourite goal for Arsenal

Over 5 years ago Thierry Henry returned to Arsenal and scored one of the greatest goals the Emirates stadium has seen, against Leeds in the FA Cup.  

When Thierry joined Sky Sports he was asked about his favourite Arsenal goal and this is what he had to say.

For Thierry it was about the emotion

“There is one goal, don’t get me wrong I enjoyed all of them, but the one when I came back to play for Arsenal that I scored against Leeds on my first game back.

“Look at the emotion, my emotion – you rarely saw me doing that. The celebration between myself and Arsène, that was genuine. You never saw me do that before.

And it really showed what his relationship with Arsene was like

“That moment sums up my relationship with Arsene, my relationship with Arsenal and my relationship with the fans.


And he would’ve hugged everyone

“If I had the time to have hugged everybody that night, I would have done it. I could have gone around the stadium and hugged everybody, the referee included, everybody. I don’t even know where I was to be honest, I was somewhere else.”
