Thierry Henry will be part of Arsene Wenger

London:

Thierry Henry will be part of Arsene Wenger's Champions League squad for Arsenal's last-16 tie against AC Milan next month, the coach confirmed on Saturday.

Henry scored 42 goals in Europe in his first spell with Arsenal and will now be involved again after completing his short-term loan deal on Friday.

Wenger, who has already said Henry will play in Monday's FA Cup tie with Leeds United, confirmed that Arsenal's record goalscorer will be eligible to play in the Champions League this season.

"Yes, he will be (in the squad)," Wenger told www.arsenal.com. "I have given Vito Mannone out on loan to Hull and Thierry will take his place.

"He has good memories of playing in Milan, where he scored three goals against Inter Milan. It is logical to include him."
