Robin van Persie says that Thierry Henry's "brave" return to Arsenal shows how much he adores the game.

Robin van Persie believes that Thierry Henry was "brave" to risk his legendary status at Arsenal by returning to the club for a two-month loan spell

The Frenchman made a sensational comeback for the Gunners by scoring the winner in the side's 1-0 victory over Leeds United in the FA Cup third round last week.

"Some people might ask why he chose to come back, because he is already a legend here," said Van Persie. "For me, it tells you everything about him; Thierry is coming back because he loves the game.

"If you asked ten legends whether they would come back, I am not sure they would have been brave enough."

The prolific Dutchman is expected to play alongside Henry when Arsenal play Swansea City on Sunday.
