Cape Town - PSG coach Laurent Blanc insists he has not thought about former New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry joining the club.

The French striker Thierry Henry played his last game for the New York Red Bulls after four and a half years at the club and confirmed his exit from the MLS club on Monday. 

Henry has now been linked with a return to Arsenal as well as a playing role with Ligue 1 club PSG.

“Could he play six months at PSG like [David] Beckham? I’ve not thought about that," Blanc told reporters according to the London Evening Standard.

“He could still play, he loves the game so much.

"I don’t know if he will retire or not.

"It wouldn’t surprise me if he continued to play. He’s had a great career and is a great player.”

Henry began his career in France with Monaco before making the move to Juventus.

It was at Juventus when Henry caught the eye of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
