Thierry Henry: Former Arsenal And France Striker Quits Soccer
Former Arsenal striker, Thierry Henry, has announced his decision to retire from professional football with immediate effect.
The 37-year-old recently decided to leave New York Red Bulls, but had yet to make a final decision on his future, Goal reports.
Henry has now made it clear that he will no longer continue his playing career and will start working as a pundit with Sky Sports instead.
“After 20 years in the game I have decided to retire from professional football. It has been an incredible journey and I would like to thank all the fans, team mates and individuals involved with Monaco, Juventus, Arsenal, Barcelona, New York Red Bulls and of course the French National Team that have made my time in the game so special,” Goal quoted the ex- French captain as saying in a statement on his official website.
“It is now time for a different career path and I am pleased to say that I will be returning to London and joining Sky Sports. I will hopefully share some of the insights, observations and experiences I have learnt over the years with you guys.
“I have had some amazing memories (mostly good!) and a wonderful experience. I hope you have enjoyed watching as much as I have enjoyed taking part. See you on the other side…”
