Arsenal legend training with Gunners again after 4-year absence

Frenchman to offer advice to youngsters.

ARSENAL legend Robert Pir�s has pulled on the club shirt once again as he trains with the Gunners in London Colney.

Pires, who played 189 games scoring 62 goals in six seasons for the club, was released by Villareal during the summer and has joined Arsenal in training to keep his fitness up.

His last appearance in North London was against the Gunners in the Champions League quarter final last year.

Pires follows Sol Campbell and David Beckham in coming to Arsenal to train as he hopes to get a contract with a French Ligue One club.
