About Thierry Henry
French football striker Thierry Henry showed promise out on the field at a young age. He was discovered during his early teen years and signed on the spot. His professional debut was in 1994. By 1998, Henry had attracted international attention, and he signed a contract with the Serie A champion Juventus. After a mediocre season, he signed a £11 million contract with the Arsenal. His eight year stint with the team catapulted him as an international soccer star, where he was the leading goal scorer for nearly every season. Coach Arsène Wenger, worked with Henry to set the record of 228 goals with the Arsenals. He went on to win two league titles and the FA cup three times over with the Gunners. Henry has been nominated twice for the FIFA World Player of the Year, and named FWA Footballer of the Year three times, and PFA Players' Player of the Year for two years. In 2007, Henry signed a contract to the tune of €24 million to play for Barcelona. Here he went on to win the Supercopa de Espana, the UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup; Thierry Henry has been part of five teams when they were named UEGA Team of the Year. Though he retired from international soccer in 2010, he is still very much active. As of 2010, he plays for the New York Red Bulls in the Major Soccer League. For two months in 2012, Arsenal got Henry on loan. Thierry Henry is one of the most commercially promoted soccer players, which is why he uses his legendary status to be an advocate against racism in football, something he has experienced.
