Thierry Henry picks his favorite goal in an Arsenal shirt
At his prime Thierry Henry gave defenders, goalkeepers and opposition coaches nightmares.
The Frenchman was simply phenomenal and scored goals for fun, guiding Arsenal to a period of dominance.
After 226 goals which included some jaw-dropping goals, Henry established himself as a true Arsenal legend.
Henry left Arsenal in 2007 to join Barcelona’s front-line. But his love for Arsenal would bring their paths together once again in 2012.
His second spell was a loan move to the Emirates for the second half of the 2011/12 season.
And it was surprisingly this period the 39-year-old said he scored the best goal of his career.
Speaking to The Sun, Henry explained: “One of my last acts in the FA Cup was special too: my strike against Leeds when I came back to London in 2012 was my favourite goal for Arsenal.
“That one was personal. It won’t go down in FA Cup history but it was the first time I scored as a fan.
“You know, I wasn’t meant to come back and I came back. I wasn’t meant to play, I played. I wasn’t meant to score, I scored. It was so emotional. It wasn’t about technique or about the score, it was what it meant to me.
“Usually when I scored I didn’t show much uncontrolled emotion. I was accused of being cold. Sometimes that was because I was annoyed because I’d missed a chance or because we were losing.
“But that day, we could have been 10-0 down and I would have still celebrated like that! I was a lunatic! I had scored as a fan! Everyone dreams of that.”
