Henry Rules Out Retirement

New York Red Bulls star Thierry Henry sidestepped questions over his future, after the club’s global director, Gerard Houllier, mentioned that he expects the 36-year-old to retire, after New York’s 1-0 friendly win over Arsenal on Saturday.

“Oh he said that?” Henry asked in response to Houllier’s comments, then added, “We’ll talk at the end of the season.”

Henry was also asked if there were any factors which would lead to him return for another year, and he refused to comment.

Henry played 54 minutes and assisted Bradley Wright Phillips’ game-winning goal against Arsenal in front of a sold-out crowd of over 25,000 fans. The match in some ways felt like a testimonial for the former Arsenal legend as fans unveiled a giant tifo showing the Frenchman in both an Arsenal and Red Bulls jersey.

Henry’s contract with the Red Bulls expires after this season, and his future has been speculated upon, over the past few months. — Soccernet
