Henry vows to return

Arsenal striker Thierry Henry is determined to return to action better than ever next term after being told he will not play again this season.
The Gunners captain has endured an injury-ravaged campaign that has now been ended by the stomach and groin muscles he injured after coming on as a second-half substitute in Wednesday's Champions League exit to PSV Eindhoven.
Henry told The Sun: "I am obviously devastated I will miss the rest of the season. It is a tough end to what has been a difficult season for me. It has been very frustrating.
"But I hope to get back to full fitness soon and will then look forward to having a great season with Arsenal next year.
"This setback will make me even more determined, yet it has certainly been one thing after another.
"Last season was a very long one for me, right up to the Champions League final and then the World Cup final with France.
"I only had a few weeks' break and then the Premiership started.
"First of all, there was the sciatic nerve problem, which kept me out for a while. Then, most recently of all, the foot injury. Now these injuries against PSV.
"Any player will tell you it is not nice sitting in the stands watching our team play. You would always rather be out there on the pitch.
"But, hopefully, our young team can enjoy a good end to the season.
"People must remember, most of them are still young and they have to be given time."
