Thierry Henry has made it everywhere–winning titles in England with Arsenal, in Spain with Barcelona, and with France in the 1998 World Cup with France. But now, the all star forward will no try his luck with the MLS league in the United States, recently joining the New York Red Bulls.
Turning down several top European teams, the 32 year old striker has agreed to a four-and-a-half year deal with New York. “I love this city,” Henry said at a news conference at Red Bulls Arena. “It was a no brainer for me.” Making yearly visits to New York since 1996, the footballer said he has always dreamed to live there.
But Henry is not looking at his tenure to America as a prolonged retirement. Instead, the player will be looking to put a disappointing year of soccer with the French World Cup team behind him and help life the Red Bulls to their first MLS title in 14 years. “I can assure you that I came here to try to win, that is the most important thing,” Henry said at a news conference at Red Bulls Arena. “I am a competitor.”
