Premier League: Arsenal legend Thierry Henry retires

Former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry has officially announced his retirement from football after a brilliant 20-year career. Henry won the World Cup with France in 1998 and still is Arsenal's all-time leading goalscorer. He left the New York Red Bulls earlier this month. "It has been an incredible journey," Henry said. He will be joining Sky Sports as an expert commentator.

Henry has also played for Monaco, Juventus, and Barcelona, and scored 175 Premier League goals, a performance that places him fourth on the list of all-time scorers. He won two Premier League titles and three FA Cups with Arsenal between 1999 and 2007. Then he won the Champions League with Barcelona in 2009. He has also won the European Championship with France in 2000.

"I would like to thank all the fans, team-mates and individuals involved with AS Monaco, Juventus, Arsenal, Barcelona, the New York Red Bulls and, of course, the French national team that have made my time in the game so special," said Henry. "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."

    This is on of the best attacker who ever played this game. Messi and Ronaldo scored more goals than Thierry Henry but this man was world class. He had feeling for goal and he had perfect tehnique. And just look at his career, he played for: Monaco, Juve, Arsenal... I think that he is big big Legend and in modern football there aren't players like Henry

    I remember him as very young player. He was something special. I loved Arsenal only because of him. He is one of the greatest striker ever play this game. I just think that he shouldn't go to Barcelona. But in barca he won Champions league and this is trophy which he was missing. I just need to say thank you big LEGEND!
