Henry was born and brought up in the tough neighbourhood of Les Ulis, Essonne—a suburb of Paris—where he played for an array of local sides as a youngster and showed great promise as a goal-scorer. He was spotted by AS Monaco in 1990 and signed instantly, making his professional debut in 1994. Good form led to an international call-up in 1998, after which he signed for the Italian defending champions Juventus. He had a disappointing season playing on the wing, before joining Arsenal for £10.5 million in 1999. Not to be confused with ULIS.

It was at Arsenal that Henry made his name as a world-class footballer. Despite initially struggling in the Premiership, he emerged as Arsenal's top goal-scorer for almost every season of his tenure there. Under long-time mentor and coach Arsène Wenger, Henry became a prolific striker and Arsenal's all-time leading scorer with 226 goals in all competitions. The Frenchman won two league titles and three FA Cups with the Gunners; he was twice nominated for the FIFA World Player of the Year, was named the PFA Players' Player of the Year twice, and the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year three times. Henry spent his final two seasons with Arsenal as club captain, leading them to the UEFA Champions League final in 2006. In June 2007, after eight years with Arsenal, he transferred to FC Barcelona for a fee of £16.1 million.

Early years

Henry is of Antillean heritage:[1] his father, Antoine, is from Guadeloupe (La Désirade island), and his mother, Maryse, is from Martinique. He was born and raised in a tough environment in the heavily urbanised Les Ulis district of Paris which, despite its hardships, provided good footballing facilities.[2] As a seven-year-old, Henry showed great potential, prompting Claude Chezelle to recruit him to the local club CO Les Ulis. His father pressured him to attend training, although the youngster was not particularly drawn to football.[3] He joined US Palaiseau in 1989, but after a year his father fell out with the club, so Henry moved to Viry-Châtillon for two years.[1] US Palaiseau coach Jean-Marie Panza, Henry's future mentor, followed him there.[2] Location of the Lesser Antilles (green) in relation to the rest of the Caribbean Islands of the Lesser Antilles The Lesser Antilles, also known as the Caribbees,[1] are part of the Antilles, which together with the Bahamas and Greater Antilles form the West Indies. ...

Club career

AS Monaco (1992–1999) and Juventus (1999)

In 1990, AS Monaco sent scout Arnold Catalano to watch Henry in a match. Henry scored all six goals as his side won 6–0. Catalano asked him to join Monaco without even attending a trial first. Catalano requested that Henry complete a course at the elite Clairefontaine academy, and despite the director's reluctance to admit Henry due to his poor school results, he was allowed to complete the course and joined Arsène Wenger's AS Monaco as a youth player.[3] Subsequently, Henry signed professional forms with AS Monaco and made his professional debut in 1994. Wenger put Henry on the left wing because he believed that his pace, natural ball control and skill would be more effective against full-backs than centre-backs. In his first season with Monaco, Henry scored three goals in 18 appearances.[1] The Association Sportive de Monaco Football Club is a Monegasque football club founded in 1919. ...

Wenger continued to search for the perfect playing position for Henry, and suspected that he should be deployed as a striker instead, but he was unsure.[1] Under the tutelage of his manager, Henry was named the French Young Footballer of the Year in 1996, and in the 1996–97 season, his solid performances helped the club win the Ligue 1 title.[3][4] During the 1997–98 season, he was instrumental in leading his club to the UEFA Champions League semi-final, setting a French record by scoring seven goals in the competition.[1][5] By his third season, he had received his first cap for the national team, and was part of the winning team in the 1998 World Cup.[1] He continued to impress at his tenure with Monaco, and in his five seasons with the French club, the young winger scored 20 league goals in 105 appearances.[4] AS Monaco won the French championship, season 1996-1997. ...

Henry left Monaco in January 1999, one year before his friend and teammate David Trezeguet, and moved to Italian Serie A club Juventus for £10.5 million.[3] He played on the wing,[6] but he was ineffective against the Serie A defensive discipline in a position uncharacteristic for him, and scored just three goals in 16 appearances.[7] David Sergio Trezeguet (IPA: []) (born 15 October 1977 in Rouen, France) is a French-Argentine football striker who plays for Juventus and France. ...

Arsenal (1999–2007)

Unsettled in Italy, Henry transferred from Juventus in August 1999 to Arsenal for £10.5 million, reuniting with his former manager Arsène Wenger.[8] It was at Arsenal that Henry made his name as a world-class footballer,[9] and although his transfer was not without controversy, Wenger was convinced he was worth the transfer fee.[1] Brought in as a replacement for fellow French forward Nicolas Anelka, Henry was immediately moulded into a striker by Wenger, a move that would pay rich dividends in years to come. However, doubts were raised about his ability to adapt to the quick and physical English game when he failed to score in his first eight games.[2] After several difficult months in England, Henry even conceded that he had to "be re-taught everything about the art of striking."[2] These doubts were dispelled when he ended his first season at Arsenal with an impressive goal tally of 26.[10] Arsenal finished second in the league behind Manchester United, and lost in the UEFA Cup final against Turkish side Galatasaray.[1] Arsenal Football Club (also known as Arsenal, The Arsenal or The Gunners) are an English professional football club based in Holloway, north London. ...

Coming off the back of a victorious Euro 2000 campaign with the national side, Henry was ready to make an impact in the 2000–01 campaign. Despite recording fewer goals and assists than his first season, Henry's second season with Arsenal proved to be a breakthrough, as he became the club's top goal-scorer.[8] Armed with one of the league's best offences, Arsenal closed in quickly on perennial rivals Manchester United for the league title. Henry remained frustrated however by the fact that he had yet to help the club win honours, and frequently expressed his desire to establish Arsenal as a powerhouse.[1] Image File history File linksMetadata Thierry_Henry_Charlton. ...

Success finally arrived during the 2001–02 season. Arsenal finished seven points above Liverpool to win the league title, and defeated Chelsea 2–0 in the FA Cup Final.[1] Henry became the league's top goal-scorer and netted 32 goals in all competitions as he led Arsenal to a double and his first silverware with the club.[3][8] There was much expectation that Henry would replicate his club form for France during the 2002 World Cup, but the defending champions suffered a shock exit at the group stage.[1] The 2001-2002 season was the 122nd season of competitive football in England. ...

2002–03 proved to be another productive season for Henry, as he scored 42 goals in all competitions while contributing 23 assists—remarkable returns for a striker.[8] In doing so, he led Arsenal to another FA Cup triumph.[11] Throughout the season, he competed with Manchester United's Ruud van Nistelrooy for the league scoring title, but the latter edged Henry to the title by a goal.[1] Nonetheless, Henry was named both the PFA Players' Player of the Year and Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year.[12][13] His rising status as one of the world's best footballers was affirmed when he emerged runner-up for the 2003 FIFA World Player of the Year award.[9] The 2002-2003 season was the 123rd season of competitive football (soccer) in England, from August 2002 to July 2003: // England national team Key: ECQ = 2004 European Championship qualifiers, F = Friendly; scores are written England first European club competitions UEFA Champions League Manchester United - Quarter finals Arsenal - Second group phase...

Entering the 2003–04 season, Arsenal were determined to reclaim the Premiership crown. Henry was again instrumental in Arsenal's exceptionally successful campaign; together with the likes of Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira and Robert Pirès, Henry ensured that the Gunners became the first team in more than a century to go through the entire domestic league campaign unbeaten, claiming the league title in the process.[14] Apart from being named for the second year running as the PFA Players' Player of the Year and Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year,[12][13] Henry emerged once again as the runner-up for 2004 FIFA World Player of the Year award.[9] With 39 goals scored in all competitions, the Frenchman led the league in goals scored and won the European Golden Boot.[3][15] However, as was the case in 2002, Henry was unable to lead the national side to honours during Euro 2004.[1] Image File history File links FOXSoccer. ...

This dip in success was compounded when Arsenal failed again to secure back-to-back league titles when they lost out to Chelsea in the 2004–05 season, although the club did win the FA Cup.[4] Henry maintained his reputation as one of Europe's most feared strikers as he led the league in scoring,[3] and with 31 goals in all competitions,[16] he was the co-recipient (with Diego Forlán) of the European Golden Boot, and is currently the only player to have officially won the award twice in a row (Ally McCoist's also had two Golden Boots in a row, but both were "unofficial".[15] The unexpected departure of compatriot Vieira in mid-2005 led to Henry being awarded club captaincy, a role which many felt was not naturally suited for him; the captaincy is more commonly given to defenders or midfielders, who are better-placed on the pitch to read the game.[3] Along with being chief goal-scorer, he was responsible for leading a very young team which had yet to gel fully.[17] The 2004-2005 season was the 125th season of competitive football in England. ...

The 2005–06 season proved to be one of remarkable personal achievements for Henry. On 17 October 2005, Henry became the club's top goal-scorer of all time;[18] two goals against Sparta Prague in the Champions League meant he broke Ian Wright's record of 185 goals.[19] On February 1, 2006, he scored a goal against West Ham, bringing his league goal tally up to 151, breaking Arsenal legend Cliff Bastin's league goals record.[20] Henry scored his 100th league goal at Highbury, a feat unparalleled in the history of the club, and a unique achievement in the Premier League.[21] He completed the season as the league's top goal-scorer,[3] and for the third time in his career, he was voted the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year.[4] The 2005–06 season was the 126th season of competitive football in England. ... is the 290th day of the year (291st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Nevertheless, Arsenal failed to win the league title again, but hopes of a trophy were revived when Arsenal reached the 2006 UEFA Champions League Final. The Gunners eventually lost 2–1 to FC Barcelona, and Arsenal's inability to win the Premiership for two consecutive seasons combined with the relative inexperience of the Arsenal squad caused much speculation that Henry would leave for another club. However, he declared his love for the club and accepted a four-year contract,[13] and said he would stay at Arsenal for life.[22] Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein later claimed the club had turned down two bids of £50 million from Spanish clubs for Henry before the signing of the new contract.[23] Had the transfer materialised, it would have surpassed the world record £47 million paid for Zinedine Zidane.[23] Image File history File linksMetadata Size of this preview: 649 × 600 pixelsFull resolution (698 × 645 pixel, file size: 112 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) File links The following pages on the English Wikipedia link to this file (pages on other projects are not listed): Thierry Henry Robin van Persie Metadata...

Henry's 2006–07 season was marred by injuries.[24] Although he scored 10 goals in 17 domestic appearances for Arsenal, Henry's season was cut short in February. Having missed games due to hamstring, foot, and back problems, he was deemed fit enough to come on as a late substitute against PSV Eindhoven in a Champions League match,[25] but began limping shortly after coming on. Scans the next day revealed that he would need at least three months to heal from new groin and stomach injuries, missing the rest of the 2006–07 season.[26] Wenger attributed Henry's injuries to a protracted 2005–06 campaign, and reiterated that Henry was keen on staying with the Gunners to rebuild for the 2007–08 season.[24] The new Wembley Stadium was completed in time for the 2006-07 seasons FA Cup Final. ...

On June 25, 2007, in an unexpected turn of events, Henry was transferred to FC Barcelona for €24 million. He signed a four-year deal for a reported 6.8 (£4.6) million per season.[27] It was revealed that the contract included a release clause of €125 (£84.9) million.[28] Henry cited the departure of Dein and continued uncertainty over Wenger's future as reasons for leaving,[29][30] and maintained that "I always said that if I ever left Arsenal it would be to play for Barcelona."[31] Despite their captain's departure, Arsenal got off to an impressive start for the 2007–08 campaign, and Henry admitted that his presence in the team might have been more of a hindrance than a help. He stated: "Because of my seniority, the fact that I was captain and my habit of screaming for the ball, they would sometimes give it to me even when I was not in the best position. So in that sense it was good for the team that I moved on."[32] Henry left Arsenal as the club's all-time league goal-scorer with 174 goals and all-time goal-scorer in Europe with 42 goals.[3] is the 176th day of the year (177th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

He scored his first goal for his new club on 19 September 2007 in a Champions League match against Lyon, which Barcelona won 3–0;[33] on 29 September 2007 in a La Liga match against Levante, he recorded his first hat-trick for Barcelona.[34] However, with Henry mostly deployed on the wing throughout the season, he was unable to reproduce the goal-scoring form he achieved with Arsenal. Barcelona was also unable to win any silverware for the second year running, leading to much uncertainty surrounding the Catalan club.

International career

Henry has had a successful career with the French national team. His international career began in June 1997, when his good form for Monaco was rewarded with a call-up to the Under-20 French national team, where he played in the 1997 FIFA World Youth Championship alongside future teammates William Gallas and David Trezeguet.[3] Within four months, France head coach Aimé Jacquet called Henry up to the senior team. The 20-year-old made his senior international debut on October 11, 1997 in a 2–1 win against South Africa.[35] Jacquet was so impressed with Henry that he took him to the 1998 World Cup. Although Henry was a largely unknown quantity at international level, he ended the tournament as France's top scorer with three goals.[36] He was scheduled to appear as a substitute in the final, where France beat Brazil 3–0, but Marcel Desailly's sending off forced a defensive change instead. On Bastille Day 1998, he was awarded France's highest decoration, the Légion d'Honneur.[36] First international Belgium 3 - 3 France (Brussels, Belgium; 1 May 1904) Biggest win France 10 - 0 Azerbaijan (Auxerre, France; 6 September 1995) Biggest defeat Denmark 17 - 1 France (London, England; 22 October 1908) World Cup Appearances 12 (First in 1930) Best result Winners, 1998 European Championship Appearances 7 (First in...

In Euro 2004, Henry played in all of France's matches and scored two goals.[4] France beat England in the group stages but lost to the eventual winners Greece 1–0 in the quarter-finals.[39] During the 2006 FIFA World Cup Henry remained as one of the automatic starters in the squad. He played as a lone striker, but despite an indifferent start to the tournament, became one of the top players of the World Cup. He scored three goals, including France's goal against returning champion and tournament favourite Brazil.[3] However, France subsequently lost to Italy on penalties (5–3) in the final. Henry did not take part in the penalty shootout, having been substituted in extra time after his legs had cramped.[40] Henry was one of 10 nominees for the Golden Ball award for Player of the Tournament, an award which was ultimately presented to his teammate, Zidane[41] and was named a starting striker on the 2006 FIFPro World XI team.[42] The UEFA Euro 2004 (or just Euro 2004) was the twelfth edition of UEFAs quadriennial European Football Championship and was held in Portugal, for the first time, between 12 June and 4 July 2004. ...

Style of play

Henry was the first-choice free kick taker for Arsenal.

Although Henry played up front as a striker during his youth,[2] he spent his time at Monaco and Juventus playing on the wing. When Henry joined Arsenal in 1999, Wenger immediately changed this, switching Henry to his childhood position, often pairing him with Dutch veteran Dennis Bergkamp.[6] During the 2004–05 season, Wenger switched Arsenal's formation to 4-5-1.[47] This change forced Henry to adapt again to fit into the Arsenal team, and he played many games as a lone striker.[6] Still, Henry remained Arsenal's main offensive threat, on many occasions conjuring spectacular goals. Wenger once said of his fellow Frenchman: "Thierry Henry could take ball in the middle of park and score a goal that no one else in the world could score".[48] Image File history File linksMetadata Download high-resolution version (1512x2268, 1524 KB) Robin van Persie prepares to take a direct free kick against Everton, which resulted in a goal. ...

One of the reasons cited for Henry's impressive play up front is his ability to calmly score from one-on-ones.[49] This, combined with his remarkable pace, means that he can get in behind defenders regularly enough to score.[2][50] When up front, Henry is occasionally known to move out wide to the left wing position,[51][52] something which enables him to contribute heavily in assists: between 2002–03 and 2004–05, the striker managed almost 50 assists in total and this was attributed to his unselfish play and creativity.[18] Given his versatility in being able to operate as both a winger and a striker, Henry is not a prototypical "out-and-out striker", but he has emerged consistently as one of Europe's most prolific strikers.[1] In set pieces, Henry was the first-choice penalty and free kick taker for Arsenal, having scored regularly from those positions.[53] In football (soccer), an assist is attributed to the one, or occasionally two, previous players of the scoring team who directed the ball to the scoring teammate (including any pass or shot rebounding off the crossbar or posts), meaning that they were assisting in the goal. ...
