Thierry Henry Retires

Soccer legend Thierry Henry put an end to his influential career at 37. After playing a final season with the New York Red Bulls Henry announced that he will be joining Sky Sports as a pundit. The multi-million pound deal Henry received now makes him the face of Sky Sports along with Gary Neville. Henry claims he wanted to give back to the game that has given him so much. He will go down as one of the best strikers in the game, and possibly the best Arsenal has ever had. He is Arsenal's all time leading goal scorer with 228 goals and also holds the record for the most goals on the French national team with 51.

Henry has also won two Premier League titles, three FA Cups. In 1998 Henry won the World Cup with France solidifying him as one of the best strikers of all time. In 2011 Arsenal unveiled a statue of the legendary striker outside the Emirates Stadium.  Recently Henry has been playing for the New York Red Bulls, a campaign which had him score 52 goals and play in 135 games. In his time spent off the field Henry has been a vocal activist against racism in soccer attempting to make the game more positive. After analyzing the game as a pundit, Henry also says he hopes to become a coach.
