Player Profile

Henry is one of the most outrageously talented players of the past decade. From the callow youth who top-scored during France's triumph at the 1998 World Cup to his country's captain and all-time record goalscorer, surpassing the great Michel Platini, Henry is a French icon.

Having emerged from the Monaco youth ranks under the guidance of a certain Arsene Wenger, Henry's abortive move to Juventus followed, where he was largely used as a winger under Carlo Ancelotti, before Wenger parted with £10.5 million to link up once again with the man he would transform into Europe's most feared forward.

Victory at Euro 2000 saw his star rise and Henry was converted from a winger to a dazzling striker, winning the Double with Arsenal before going on to dominate the league in the years to follow. His club record tally of 228 goals in 377 games included all manner of spectacular strikes and unforgettable matches, and he signed off in Highbury's final game, typically, with a hat-trick.

But a move to Emirates Stadium in 2006 signalled the beginning of the end for Henry. In that summer he lost in both the final of the Champions League and the World Cup, and while he signed a new contract with Arsenal despite strong interest from Barcelona, he suffered from fitness problems and eventually moved to Catalunya in the summer of 2007, bringing to an end a golden period in England during which he won two titles, two FA Cups and five player of the year awards.

In Barcelona, Henry would finally capture the Champions League trophy that had eluded him when playing a prominent role in Barca's remarkable Treble-winning campaign of 2008-09, but the following year saw him left out of the side and he embarked on a new challenge in the MLS a few weeks after France's dismal World Cup campaign.

His efforts with the New York Red Bulls saw him land the Major League Soccer Eastern Conference in 2010 but, in January 2011, he was given another chance at the Gunners as Arsenal took him back for a two-month loan period. His return to the club came just weeks after his statue was erected outside the Emirates stadium and his goal against Leeds United in the FA Cup was a moment to remember for all.

His legacy at Arsenal will live on forever, but his hunger for glory continued as he picked up the MLS Eastern Conference again in 2013, along with the MLS Supporters' Shield.

Strengths: One of the most complete forwards of recent times, Henry boasts electric pace, superb control, intricate technique and unrivalled composure in front of goal. His creative streak is put to good use when unselfishly teeing up team-mates with finesse and he has a strong character and a winner's mentality. Also a threat from set-pieces.

Weaknesses: Finding fault in Henry is a difficult enterprise, but a headed goal is a rarity from the Frenchman and fitness problems have afflicted him somewhat in recent seasons. His suitability for a captaincy role has also been questioned.

Career high: Henry was at his peak when Arsenal went the entire Premier League season unbeaten in 2003-04, scoring a highly impressive 30 goals in 37 league appearances and being named both PFA Players' Player of the Year and Footballer of the Year.

Career low: Becoming a target for venomous criticism and a national hate figure in Ireland when he committed a blatant handball before squaring for William Gallas to score the goal that took France to the World Cup finals.

Style: Flamboyant, prolific, complete, a once-in-a-generation striker.

Quotes: "When I first put him at centre forward, he said, 'Look I cannot score goals' [but] for someone who cannot score goals he has done quite well! He is a legend at the club, and if you ask every Arsenal fan 'who is the [key] player of Arsenal?' they will say Thierry Henry." Arsene Wenger, July 2014

Trivia: Henry is the only player to have been named England's Footballer of the Year on three separate occasions , although individual accolades on an international level have always eluded him.
