Platini; Give Your Head A Shake
French footballing legend has said Thierry Henry has made a massive mistake penning a new deal at Arsenal rather than heading for Spain and Barcelona.
Outragously Platini suggests that what Henry lacks to be a great player is titles, even though he has won two premier league titles, three fa cups and help Arsenal to go down in history as the longest unbeaten side in English football history, smashing scoring records along the way.
'I sincerely believe he made a mistake in not signing for Barcelona,' Platini told The Sun. 'I told him so and said the same to Barca president Joan Laporta. Henry would have grown a lot at Barcelona.'
'Thierry Henry is a truly great player and is on the verge of over-taking me as a goalscorer for France. However, he hasn't achieved the same category of other great stars. Why? Because he lacks playing in a great team and winning titles with his club like he has done with France, where he has been European and world champion.'
Some may question my slating of the 'great' Platini's comments, but remember, this is the guy who wanted tackling to be taken out of the game.
