Thierry Henry won the Premier League, FA Cup, La Liga, Copa del Rey, Champions League, World Cup and European Championship during his career – not to mention the respect of some of the world’s greatest players.
In 369 appearances for Arsenal, Henry scored 226 goals to become the club’s record scorer. He won the FA Cup three times and the Premier League title twice, including as part of the ‘Invincibles’ in 2003-04.
Three years in Barcelona brought two league titles and the Champions League, among others honours, while he also ended his career as France’s top goalscorer of all time with 51 goals in 123 caps.
