The Good, The Bad Movie & The Injury
The good (Thierry Henry) The Bad movie (Henry's strange analogy) and the injury
Thierry Henry has spoken about how he hopes he has learnt his lessons with regards to playing through injury.
The Arsenal skipper admitted that he played the latter end of the season whilst suffering injuries, even though he knew he shouldn't.
'When you physically can't go on, the wise thing to do is not to go out there. It doesn't help you and it doesn't help the team,' said the captain.
He then went into strange analogy mode.
'It's like when you are watching a bad movie with your wife and you are both falling asleep. You will say 'I'm not falling asleep' and you won't admit the film is rubbish. You keep on watching it.'
'My brain was like that. When people asked if I was okay I would say 'Yes' even though I knew I wasn't.'
'You have to read the right signals in your body. One thing I have found difficult to do is to listen to my body. I need to do that.'
'I hope all my problems are over but when you average over 60 games a season you pay the price.'
