European Football (EPL, UEFA, La Liga) / Thierry Henry Retires From Professional Football. by dabrake(m): 2:38pm On Dec 16, 2014
Thierry Henry has announced his retirement from football and will join Sky Sports as a football expert and ambassador from the start of 2015.
The global sporting icon will work across Sky Sports’ unrivalled schedule of live international, European and domestic football, joining a line-up of football experts that includes Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Jamie Redknapp and Graeme Souness.

Sky Sports viewers will be able to enjoy Henry’s opinions and insight forged from a playing career of unparalleled success.

Henry lifted more than 35 major individual and team trophies including the World Cup and European Championship for France, the Champions League and La Liga with Barcelona, the Premier League and FA Cup at Arsenal, the French League at Monaco and the MLS Shield with the New York Red Bulls.

He was twice winner of the European Golden boot, four times winner of the English Premier League Golden Boot, five times winner of the French Player of the Year, three-time winner of the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year at Arsenal and twice winner of the PFA Players’ Player of the Year.
He is the all-time leading goalscorer in the history of both Arsenal and France. He was also an integral member of the historic Arsenal Premier League-winning ‘Invincible’ team of 2004.

Thierry Henry said: “I’ve been fortunate enough to have had an amazing playing career with many incredible memories and now I can’t wait for the next chapter to begin with Sky Sports.

"I played for some of the best teams in football and now I’m joining what I think is the best team in television. I’m looking forward to joining the guys and helping to provide Sky Sports viewers with the best possible analysis. I can’t wait.”

Sky Sports Managing Director Barney Francis commented: “The best team just got better. The addition of Thierry Henry to our team of experts will help take Sky Sports’ football coverage to the next level. He’s played on the greatest stages, with some of the greatest players, in some of the greatest teams and for the first time, viewers can enjoy his insight and opinions throughout the football season.

“Thierry also shares Sky’s passion for using sport to help inspire young people to achieve their potential. I know he’ll do a brilliant job working with Sky Academy by supporting the excellent work Sky Sports Living for Sport does across Britain and Ireland.”

Some of his selected career achievements include :

World Cup (1998)
European Championship (2000)
Champions League (2009)
European Golden Boot (2004, 2005)
Spanish League (2009, 2010)
English Premier League (2002, 2004)
FA Cup (2002, 2003, 2005)
French League (1997)
Gary Neville said: “We were blessed in this country to see Thierry playing at his peak, potentially one of the greatest players in the world and even if you supported another team you couldn’t help but enjoy watching him play. It’s always a shame when such a career comes to an end, but it’s very much Sky Sports’ gain and I look forward to working with him.”

Jamie Carragher said: “Defenders everywhere will be breathing a sigh of relief that he has hung his boots up, he was certainly the toughest opponent I ever faced and possibly the best player the Premier League has seen. I would have loved him to be on the same team as me during my playing career, I’m delighted we’re finally on the same side.”
Jamie Redknapp said: “I know from playing against Thierry how good a player he was and Sky Sports viewers are in for a treat. His game was built around incredible pace, power and finishing, not to mention the ability to read the game better than most. His views will be fascinating and I can’t wait to work alongside him.”

In a club career that spanned 20 years for Monaco, Juventus, Arsenal, Barcelona and the New York Red Bulls, Thierry scored more than 300 goals in just over 600 appearances. He also scored 51 goals for France.

He is Arsenal’s all-time leading goalscorer and was part of the ‘Invincibles’ side who went 49 games unbeaten in 2003/04. Henry joined Barcelona in 2007 becoming part of the Josep Guardiola side that won six major trophies in one year, a feat never achieved before, including a Spanish domestic treble and a UEFA Champions League triumph over Manchester United.

He has spent the last four seasons playing for New York Red Bulls in the MLS, lifting the Shield in 2013 and being named on the MLS All-star team in all four seasons. He made his final appearance for New York Red Bulls on Saturday November 29

This season, Sky Sports will show more football than ever before, up to 800 live matches. As well as Barclays Premier League, viewers can enjoy live coverage of European qualifiers for UEFA EURO 2016, UEFA Champions League, SkyBet Football League, SPFL, Capital One Cup, La Liga, Eredivisie, Copa del Rey and Coppa Italia, Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and Sky Sports Victory Shield.

Henry joins a team that already includes former footballer David Beckham as ambassador to Sky Academy, with Jonny Wilkinson, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Darren Campbell also working across Sky Sports Living for Sport, part of Sky Academy. A free initiative open to all secondary schools across the UK and Ireland, Sky Sports Living for Sport uses sport stars and the skills learnt through sport to help build confidence and develop life skills.

Sky Academy aims to give young people in Britain and Ireland the help and opportunities they need to succeed in a changing world. Sky Academy makes the most of the strengths in media and technology within the company, as well as the passion and expertise of our people, and aims to help a million young people gain skills, experience and self-belief by 2020.

Ymodulus:
Rubbish!

What if the man stated in 1981 that he was from Ilaje in Ondo State? That is 33 years ago; then he moved & settled in Epe, Lagos State maybe 15 years ago. He has been paying his tax, contributing to development (economical as well as politically) within his immediate Epe adopted home since then; why should some fools think he has no right of voting & being voted for in any political position of his choice within Lagos in particular and Nigeria in general? Is he no longer a Nigerian, even if he originally came from Ilaje in Ondo State? Though I hate Nigeria corrupt political class in general, but Nigerians should reason like humans for once in their backward thinking life!
Does it mean a 'Chunkwuma', an 'Udoh' or a 'Danjuma' contest for the apex position of Lagos state executive?
I dig your school of thought but I hope you ain't hypocritical

These are the kind of sound minds you find in APC such as Dabiri, Fashola, Prof Pat Utomi, Oshiomle, Dr Fayemi, Ambode, Amosun, Ajimobi, Tambuwa, Aregbesola, Oshiomole and the host of others. These individuals have distinguish themselves in their various way not like the PDP were u find ex-convicts, drug barons, looters of our national wealth, and murderers. This is the main reason I love this party call APC


God bless Nigeria

If it boils down to debate, Athiefku will brush Buhari convincingly. I've been following his campaign on Facebook and believe me, he is too sound.
Unfortunately, a leopard do not change its spots. No to Athiefku.

I believe the DSS are trying to save their face with the "18 times registration" thing. Seems they realized that they goofed. They have been lying from time immemorial.

Billyonaire:
Who hasnt fallen for these girls is lucky.

I didnt even know she was playing me, I loved her like nothing else in this world and I thought she was in dire straits, before I knew it, I was down in lust/love triangle and I spent over 600,000 within a semester of time for a girl who I discovered was also using the funds to pay rent for the boyfriend who eventually became her husband. The marriage has failed and she cries to each time she remembers she is supposed to be a wife of Billyonaire. I purposefully invite her and the sisters to my house and tell them the story. They reap what they sow.
That face you make when you are minding your business and then you overhear someone lying.
