Thierry Henry, 37, will leave the New York Red Bulls in 2015. The team released an official statement thanking the superstar for the 51 goals scored over 122 games played in 4 1/2 seasons. Henry hasn't announced plans to retire and could sign with a new Major League Soccer club or a team overseas.
"On behalf of the New York Red Bulls I would like to thank Thierry Henry for the incredible impact he has made on both our organization and the American soccer community as a whole. He is truly one of the all-time great talents and will forever hold a special place within the organization's history. We wish Thierry all the best for his future," New York Red Bulls General Manager Marc de Grandpre said in a statement.
Henry joined the Red Bulls as a designated player on July 24, 2010. During his time with the team, he was named as an MLS All-Star four times and was a MVP finalist in 2012. "I am taking this opportunity to announce that unfortunately Saturday was my last game for the New York Red Bulls. The decision has always been that I would leave after the duration of my contract and although that was never going to change, I didn't want it to distract from the progress of the team," Henry said in a statement. The Red Bulls drew the New England Revolution 2-2 on Saturday but lost 4-3 on aggregate in the Eastern Conference Championship.
Henry said he wants to continue his soccer career in some capacity, whether it is as a player or as a consultant, reported BBC, citing an interview with L'Equipe. Another possibility for the forward could be a return to Arsenal, the team where he became an international superstar. Henry played for the Gunners from 1999 to 2007. Henry won two Premier League titles and was part of the 2003-2004 team known as "The Invincibles," which went undefeated.
