Arsenal confirm Henry as captain
Arsenal captain Thierry Henry
Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has been confirmed as the Gunners' new captain.

Henry, 27, replaces his French international team-mate Patrick Vieira as skipper, after Vieira joined Juventus on Friday in a 13.75m deal.

Henry has been at Arsenal for six years after joining from Juve for 10.5m and is on the brink of breaking Ian Wright's goals record for the club.

He skippered the side for the first time in his official role in their 4-1 friendly victory against Barnet.
