Thierry Henry has got a huge number of Arsenal fans excited with his latest tweet, as the club legend seems to have hinted that he’ll be featuring in FIFA 17 when it’s released later this year.
The former Barcelona star didn’t actually say that he was going to be in FIFA 17, but he revealed that he’d done a shoot to make him a playable character in an upcoming computer game.

There aren’t many games out there that could possibly feature Henry as a playable character, so it seems likely that FIFA 17 is the one he’s talking about. Fans certainly seemed to think so anyway, with many of them taking to Twitter to reveal how pleased they were with his potential inclusion as a legend of the game.
@ThierryHenry FIFA 17 Legend!!!!!!!!!

We’ve seen some fantastic legends in the game, but Thierry Henry could be among the best. His physical and mental abilities not only made him one of the best forwards in the world, but also seem like they would fit FIFA perfectly.
He’ll also be among the youngest legends in the game, with very few players named in there below the age of 38.
Arsenal transfer news
Henry is currently doing his coaching badges and managing the Arsenal youth teams, so we may well see him stepping up as a coach sooner or later. Hopefully he’ll be able to become a legend of the managerial world as well as the playing field.
