French soccer star Thierry Henry has just announced his retirement from professional football after 20 years through his Facebook page. He played for top clubs like Barcelona, Arsenal & France. He said will be returning to London to join Sky Sports as a football expert and ambassador.
“After 20 years in the game I have decided to retire from professional football. It has been an incredible journey and I would like to thank all the fans, team mates and individuals involved with AS Monaco, Juventus, Arsenal FC, FC Barcelona, the New York Red Bulls and of course the French national team that have made my time in the game so special. It is now time for a different career path and I am pleased to say that I will be returning to London and joining Sky Sports. I will hopefully share some of the insights, observations and experiences I have learnt over the years with you guys. I have had some amazing memories (mostly good!) and a wonderful experience. I hope you have enjoyed watching as much as I have enjoyed taking part.”
Kudos to him. He has won FIFA World Cup, UEFA World Cup, FIFA Confederation’s Cup, UEFA Champions League, EPL, FA Cup, Carling Cup, Copa del rey, Spanish La Liga, PFA Player twice, Player of the Year, Arsenal’s best player, Arsenal’s top goal scorer, French highest goal scorer which beat Platini’s record and he won player of the month so many times for the clubs he played for.
What a great run for Thiery Henry.
