Thierry Henry heads to USA (Interview Video)

Thierry Henry has joined Major League Soccer outfit New York Red Bulls from FC Barcelona on a multi-year contract.


The France striker leaves the Catalan giants on a free transfer following three years at Camp Nou despite still having 12 months left on his contract. The former Arsenal captain becomes another major footballing name to sign for an American club, following in the footsteps of David Beckham at LA Galaxy. Henry had showed his desire to go and play football in the US way before in his Arsenal days, and this move gave Henry an escape door from Barcelona, where he was frustrated by the lack of first-team action. Henry’s debut for the Red Bulls is expected to be on July 22 against English Premiership club, Tottenham Hotspur, in the Barclays New York Challenge at Red Bull Arena.

“Thierry is not only a world class player who will undoubtedly improve our squad, but he has shown most importantly throughout his career that he is a winner,” said Erik Soler, Red Bull New York General Manager

“This marks an exciting new chapter in my career and life. It is an honor to play for the New York Red Bulls. I am fully aware of the team’s history and my sole goal during my time here is to help win the club its first championship. Knowing Red Bull’s significant commitment to soccer locally and internationally, I am confident that my teammates and I will succeed.” – Thierry Henry
