Thierry Henry has left FC Barcelona for the New York Red Bulls who play in the MLS. As the americans love to play ‘football’ with their hands he should be right at home. Bo Jackson was famous for playing american football and baseball at the same time, Henry looked very good with his hands aganst the Republic Of Ireland so i’m wondering if he will be scouted by the New York Giants. After losing their high profile wide receiver Plaxico Burress to a silly gun charge Thierry Henry could slot in perfectly to give Eli Manning another high profile wide receiving option.
The 32 year old left Barcelona on a free transfer and signed a multi-year deal with the Red Bulls. In an interview with his new club official website Henry has this to say about his new team.
“This marks an exciting new chapter in my career and life”
“It is an honour to play for the New York Red Bulls. I am fully aware of the team’s history and my sole goal during my time here is to help win the club its first championship.
“Knowing Red Bull’s significant commitment to soccer locally and internationally, I am confident that my team-mates and I will succeed.”
The New York Red Bulls play Tottenham Hotspurs of the English Premier League on July 22nd and Henry could make his debut in that match.
