Thierry Henry put in his resignation letter today…
Legendary forward Thierry Henry is officially hanging up his cleats.
After announcing he would not return to the New York Red Bulls next season, Henry used his facebook page to tell the world he was retiring from professional soccer.
Here’s what he posted:
“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 AS Monaco, Juventus, Arsenal FC, FC Barcelona, the New York Red Bulls and of course the French National Team that have made my time in the game so special.
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…”
Henry made 123 appearances for France and scored 51 goals in his career
