Henry: I'll Never Leave

Henry: I'll Never Leave

Thierry Henry has fallen in love with the city of London, it is his home now and he says he will never leave.

Just 48 hours after the crushing defeat in the Champion League final by Barcelona Henry signed a new four year deal with the Gunners announcing 'I will finish my career with Arsenal', but even when his illustrious career finishes he won't leave London.

'London is my home. I love London and I will never leave here whatever happens. I am proud of it. It is never easy for someone from abroad to come and be accepted.'

Speaking at the launch of his brand new Reebok sponsorship Henry also wanted to set a few things straight. The Gunners marksman is world renouned for his famous scowl and 'arrogant' goal celebrations, but the Frenchman doesn't want to be perceived like that off the pitch.

'I know it is difficult to believe because when I see myself on the pitch I can't believe how serious I look. But that's the way I am and I will never change. Off the pitch I am not the same guy you see on the pitch. I am chilled and laid-back. It must be my West Indian roots.'

However Henry doesn't have a problem with his on pitch antics.

'In the game you need a bit of arrogance. I have never been scared of saying that I am confident of my abilities. Some people have a problem about saying that but I know what I am good at and what I am not good at.'

I agree but I also think he could score 10 more every season if he was more agressive in front of goal - sometimes I believe he is a bit too casual and misses chances with an attempted soft "clever" effort when a good old fashioned well placed thunderbolt is called for. However, as was said, he is still the best in the world because he has nearly as many assists as goals and thats why is IS the best !!!

Unless you are a particularly stupid rent boy with a fat greedy money-grabbing agent and blinded by money yourself.

His arrogance is what makes him the player he is. It's what gives him that extra 5%, otherwise he wouldn't have scored that backheel v Charlton that swivel and volley against Man USA etc etc etc etc.
