Thierry Daniel Henry (born 17 August 1977) is a French professional football coach and former player who is currently the manager of Major League Soccer club Montreal Impact. He is considered one of the greatest strikers of all time and has often been debated by pundits and journalists as the greatest striker in the history of the Premier League.
Henry enjoyed sustained success with France, winning the 1998 FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro 2000 and 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup. He was awarded the French Player of the Year five times. He was also named to the UEFA Euro 2000 Team of the Tournament, awarded both the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup Golden Ball and Golden Shoe, and was named to the 2006 FIFA World Cup All-Star Team. In October 2007, he became his country’s record goalscorer. After amassing 123 appearances and 51 goals, Henry retired from international football after the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Signed from Juventus in 1999, Thierry Henry would go to become an Invincible, a Double winner, a Premier League record holder, the clubs all-time leading goalscorer (228) and be honoured with a statue at Emirates Stadium.
Henry’s Arsenal record is outstanding, winning two League titles, three FA Cups, four Golden Boots and five Player of the Year awards, and to think he wasn’t even considered as a striker when he joined the club!
