Thierry Henry says that he is going to try to emulate Ryan Giggs.

Thierry Henry has said that he shall try to play a similar role to Manchester United's Ryan Giggs upon his return to the Emirates.

The Frenchman has warned Arsenal fans not to expect him to be the same as he once was, but believes that he can use his experience to adapt his game just as the Welshman has done at Old Trafford.

"I am not 25 anymore," he said. "I am not going to take the ball from the middle of the park and dribble past five or six players. Don't expect that.

"If you look at Ryan Giggs, it's not the same Ryan Giggs, who used to take the ball from the wing or from Denis Irwin and dribble past everyone and deliver a great cross.

"But what Ryan Giggs has is he can see the game, he is always available, he puts himself in a position where he can receive the ball alone and then you will never lose your touch. That's what I am going to try to bring to this team if I have to play."

Henry is expected to be handed his first playing time against Leeds United on Monday night.
