Despite coming to the twilight of his career, the former Arsenal and Barcelona striker Thierry Henry has said that he has no intention of retiring from the game as of yet. The former French international is currently playing for the MLS club New York Red Bulls, while he was recently linked with a return to Arsenal for the third spell. However, the Arsenal manager Wenger recently confirmed that he does not have plans to bring in Henry on a season long loan deal like last season. Henry is regarded as one of the greatest strikers of all time, and he has won numerous trophies at club and international level.
The trophy cabinet is filled with the likes of the World Cup, European Championships, Premier league title, la Liga title, and the Champions league title amongst a whole host of others. The striker has managed to score 15 goals for his team last season, while also contributing 12 assists as well. He has said that he believes he can still play at the top level for two more years. The 35-year-old has said that it will be a very difficult decision to stop playing, but his body will certainly tell him when the time is right.
“I’m giving myself another two years. That’ll take me to 37 years old. It’ll make my career 20 years long. I recently talked about it with Robert Pires. It’s never easy to stop, but there comes a time when your body tells you to. The head wants to continue, but… it’s certainly not desire that I’ll be lacking. But, at a certain moment in time, you have to stop,” said Henry. The 35-year-old is also the record goal scorer at Arsenal after managing to break the previous record in his second spell at the club last season.
