The 37-year-old won two Premier League titles during his time with the Gunners and remains the club’s record goalscorer with 228 goals in 377 appearances
The 37-year-old called time on his playing career earlier this week after defeat in the MLS Eastern Conference final with New York Red Bulls and will now become a pundit for Sky Sports.
Henry helped guide Arsenal to two Premier League titles and three FA Cup trophies, while he remains the club’s top scorer with 228 goals in 377 appearances.
“He’s had a massive career and I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for what he’s done for the club,” Wenger told reporters on Friday.
“He was a combination of physical talent and intelligence. He was one of the greatest players I’ve ever seen.”
