Video: Thierry Henry’s Seriously Classy Message to Norwich U23 Striker in Need of Second Kidney Transplant

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has sent a very classy message to a Norwich City under-23 striker who is need of a second kidney transplant.

The forward in question is 19-year-old Shae Hutchinson, who suffers from a hereditary condition called Alport Syndrome – which along with affecting his hearing and eyesight – means the kidney he was donated by his father in 2018 is now functioning at only 17% of its full capacity.

Hutchinson has been regarded as one of the most exciting prospects in the Canaries’ youth set-up since joining from Arsenal three years ago, but now it seems his hopes of making it in the Premier League are once again hanging in the balance.

After hearing about the youngster’s ordeal, Arsenal’s all-time leading scorer Henry has sent a message to the teenager – and simply described Hutchinson as his ‘hero’ in a short heartwarming clip:

What a nice message, eh?

Fingers cross Shae finds a solution soon and is back banging in the goals!
