LONDON // The New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry has begun a training stint with former club Arsenal to keep fit during the Major League Soccer offseason.

The 33-year-old Henry left Arsenal in 2007 for Barcelona after scoring a club record 226 goals between 1999 and 2007.

Henry will begin his second season with the Red Bulls on March 19 with a home match against the Seattle Sounders.

A statement on Arsenal's official website read: "Thierry Henry is back at Arsenal.

"The Gunners legend returned to London Colney on Monday to train with Arsene Wenger's squad. The short-term arrangement will help Henry maintain his fitness ahead of the new MLS campaign, which begins in March.

"Henry joined the New York Red Bulls last year and helped them reach the play-offs, where they lost on aggregate to San Jose Earthquakes in November."
