Arsenal captain Thierry Henry has been ruled out for the rest of the season because of groin and stomach injuries.
Henry's season has been hit by injuries
The 29-year-old tore muscles in Wednesday's 1-1 draw with PSV Eindhoven, which saw the Gunners crash out of the Champions League.
Henry, who signed a new contract last summer, has struggled with a sciatic nerve problem all season.
Manager Arsene Wenger said: "We are confident that he will be ready for the start of next season."
Defeat in the Champions League left Wenger's side with only their Premiership position to fight for, having already exited both domestic cups.
Henry endured a gruelling season in 2005/6, leading his club to the Champions League final in May before heading to the World Cup where France reached the final before losing to Italy.
He played a total of 56 games for club and country, scoring 38 goals.
This season, he has managed 31 games, finding the net 14 times.
