The former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has said that he feels that the former Everton midfielder Tim Cahill is a huge competitor. The Australian international recently completed his switch to the MLS after he has signed for the New York red Bulls, who also have Thierry Henry on the books.
The former Arsenal striker is regarded as one of the best in the world when it comes to playing up front. The Frenchman told Man City Football News that he is extremely delighted with what he has seen of the Australian international in the first few matches after his transfer from Everton for around £ 1 million.
The 32-year-old still has a lot to offer for New York Red Bulls according to the former Arsenal and Barcelona striker. Even though he has started out his career as a midfielder, Tim Cahill has the capability of playing as a striker, as he has done on many occasions for Everton in the past. Even though he is unlikely to be able to replace Thierry Henry at the club, the Frenchman believes that the competitiveness within the 32-year-old will be a major factor in helping New York red Bulls win the MLS title this season.
“You can see he’s physical but fair. I think the referees are getting him wrong sometimes because they are not used to the physicality of the Premiership, the way he jumps and everything. But he’s a fair player, he can bring a lot of stuff to us. It’s more about [being] a competitor. He’s a competitor and he can help everybody going forward, and I think that’s the most important thing, and he’s bringing another dimension to this team. We can play long, he can hold the ball and stuff like that, so I think that can be great for us,” Henry said recently.
