As far as careers go, Thierry Henry’s will certainly go down in football folklore.
With a World Cup, Champions League, Super Cup, Ligue 1, Premier League and La Liga (to name a few) to his name, the Frenchman is by far the most successful player ever to play in the MLS.
This Saturday’s MLS Cup second leg at the home of New England Revolution could bring down the curtain on Henry’s glittering career. The Red Bulls currently trail 2-1 and would need to win the game by a two goal deficit to overturn the first leg loss and progress or their season is over, and so could the Ex Barca star’s career.
At 37 years old, Henry is at the tail-end of his career. His contract which he signed in 2010 expires when the New York Red Bulls season winds up and that could very well be Saturday.
Whenever the sad day is, the flamboyant Frenchman sure has gave us some memories we’ll never forget.
Merci, Thierry Henry.
