Video: Thierry Henry arrives at New York Red Bulls, does a photoshoot
Tel tries his new kit on
Following the kind-of-surprising-but-kind-of-predictable news that Thierry Henry is leaving Barcelona and heading to the MLS, the France international has arrived at New York Red Bulls.
To quell any rumours that this was a marketing ploy to maximise profits for both parties as an over-the-hill Henry winds down his career, the 32-year-old got his new kit and immediately threw himself into a gruelling photoshoot complete with a cheesy synth soundtrack.
Henry said: “It is an honour 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 team-mates and I will succeed.”
The former Arsenal skipper will make his debut in a friendly against Tottenham later this month.
