Thierry Henry has announced his retirement from football and will join Sky Sports as a football expert and ambassador from the start of 2015.
The global sporting icon will work across Sky Sports’ unrivaled schedule of live international, European and domestic football, joining a line-up of football experts that includes Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Jamie Redknapp and Graeme Souness.
Sky Sports viewers will be able to enjoy Henry’s opinions and insight forged from a playing career of unparalleled success.
Henry lifted more than 35 major individual and team trophies including the World Cup and European Championship for France, the Champions League and La Liga with Barcelona, the Premier League and FA Cup at Arsenal, the French League at Monaco and the MLS Shield with the New York Red Bulls.
He was twice winner of the European Golden boot, four times winner of the English Premier League Golden Boot, five times winner of the French Player of the Year, three-time winner of the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year at Arsenal and twice winner of the PFA Players’ Player of the Year.
Long story short we loved to watch that bald headed cutie do his thing 🙂
Thierry Henry said: “I’ve been fortunate enough to have had an amazing playing career with many incredible memories and now I can’t wait for the next chapter to begin with Sky Sports.
“I played for some of the best teams in football and now I’m joining what I think is the best team in television. I’m looking forward to joining the guys and helping to provide Sky Sports viewers with the best possible analysis. I can’t wait.”
Here’s a short slide show of his journey in football. He will remain an icon on the field.
