Henry completes his Barcelona move
The picture says it all really. Thierry Henry is 100% officially a Barcelona player and unsurprisingly, he is delighted.
“I am really pleased to be here. It has been a long chase but I’m finally here and happy to be here and I can’t wait to go out there and show what I can do to the fans. Hopefully I can be a great asset for the team.”
I’m sure he will. I also believe that Henry hinted at the real reason for his departure in further comments he made in his first press conference as a Barcelona player.
“It is a dream for everyone to win the Champions League and I’m sure it will be the dream of Barcelona to win it again next season. It is the only thing I didn’t win [at Arsenal] but the most important thing is that Barcelona is successful and they win silverware.”
You can’t really argue with what Henry has said, it’s just that I would have preferred him to say in his goodbye interview with Arsenal TV. I gave my thoughts on Henry’s departure in a detailed article featured in yesterday’s post entitled “Henry’s exit to give Arsenal a fresh start”. I really encourage readers to check it out and let me know what you think.
