The New York Red Bulls frontman stunned the footballing world when he rejoined Arsenal on a two-month loan deal last week and capped off his shock return to North London with a trademark finish as his goal dumped Leeds United out of the FA Cup last Monday night.
Although Henry and Manchester United's Paul Scholes have both sensationally returned to the Premier League, former hardman Vieira has insisted that he is not itching for a return back onto the pitch.
35-year-old Vieira, who has now swapped his jersey for a suit as Manchester City's football development executive, was as quoted as saying in an article on The Sun, "I've already turned the page and I'm in a different mind-set now. I'm enjoying my new role at City."
Nevertheless, the French World Cup winning midfielder admitted that he was delighted for his compatriot.
"Henry's goal was beautiful. When he scored, you could see the joy on everyone's faces - that's England for you!," Vieira quipped.
"We spoke, we talked about the times we went through at the club, our best moments. He is on cloud nine, going through an unforgettable period."
Former Arsenal captain Vieira played more than 400 games for the Gunners, winning three Premier League titles and four FA Cups.
