Henry, a master marksman still trying to crack management

Thierry Henry

Here comes Thierry Henry! The striker… known as Thierry Daniel Henry, a French football coach, and former player. He is currently the manager of Major League Soccer club Montreal Impact. He scored more goals than any French player in the history of football. He retired from football in December 2014. Let’s look at what Thierry Henry has achieved to date.

Henry began playing football at the age of 17. He enhanced his skills in football when he was playing for Monaco. He then moved to Juventus and seven months later he was transferred to Arsenal FC. Henry has good passing skills, a terrific finish and scores goals with a soft touch from a short distance. In 2002 and 2004, he scored 174 goals for Arsenal in eight seasons. Arsenal won two league titles. How impressive!

In 2002 and 2003, he was the European Footballer of the Year and won the Golden Shoe in 2003-2004. However, in 2007, Henry was transferred to Barcelona. After three years, he signed with the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer. Henry returned to Arsenal for two months in the MLS off-season.

He was even a member of the European under-18 championship team in 1996, where two years later the French national team won the FIFA World Cup. In 2007, Henry scored his 42nd goal and became an all-time leading scorer in international competition.

When Henry’s career ended, he began working as a TV analyst in 2015. In the same year, he became the coach of Arsenal’s under-16 team. In July 2016, he left Arsenal and continued his TV work. Plus, he became an assistant coach for the Belgian national team. After that, he moved to become manager for Monaco, but his contract lasted three months.

Henry said:

“I can give you a lot of excuses but at the end of the day it didn’t work out… The only mistake you can make is not learning. Hopefully that’s going to help me to become a good coach.”

“It didn’t work out in Monaco. I can give you a lot of excuses but at the end of the day it didn’t work out and I am here as a coach of Montreal, I learned a lot there. The only mistake you can make is not learning from what happened. You have to confront it. It’s about fighting all the time, this isn’t only my story it’s the story of everybody in life. You are going to fall but it’s how to get up.”

“You guys always remember the good stuff, but I became a better player in the darkness.”
