Wenger : Henry is Still Great
Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger believes, former foster children who are now defending the New York Red Bulls, Thierry Henry, still appear in the high performance even though he is not young anymore.
It was mentioned by Wenger after his team draw against New York Red Bulls 1-1 at the Emirates Cup on Sunday (31/07/2011). Appearance of 33-year-old attacker was quite impressive. In fact, he is an important actor behind an own goal which made Kyle Bartley.
“They say, big clubs do not ever die, and it’s just as great players never die. Thierry showed us that he is still qualified by the legs and head,” explained Wenger.
“With his head, I know he still has a good quality. With his feet, I do not know exactly. However, he still has a good physical and have prepared him best for this game. I am very excited to see his performance today,” continued the coach Frenchman.
Wenger had hoped Henry could appear to defend his team in the final minutes of the match.
“I want him to play with us in the last five minutes. However, the referee did not allow it. I went to the referee when istirihat and asked him to let Henry performing with us. But, they told us that the rules do not allow players to play on two teams in the game the same, “he explained.
