Tottenham Harry Redknapp thinks Thierry Henry’s short term deal with North London rivals Arsenal’s will boost the Gunners chances of Champions League qualification.
The Frenchman re-joined Arsenal on a two-month loan deal subject to an insurance agreement being reached with the striker’s parent club, New York Red Bulls.
The 34-year-old returns to a club where he scored 226 times in 370 appearances during an eight-year spell widely regarded as the most successful in the Londoners’ history.
“It’s fantastic for them,” Redknapp said.
“He is one of the great players in the history of the Premier League. ”
“I’m sure he will be a good signing for Arsenal for a couple of months. He will be good to have around the place.
“It’s important to have people like that around your club and in the dressing room. They’re good on the pitch and off it too. He is a top-class professional.”
