Henry: 'A Dream' to Play in the U.S.
New York Times, October 18th, 2007 3:45PM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

The New York Times' Jack Bell nabbed an interview with Barcelona and France striker Thierry Henry prior to the recent international break, during which Henry scored three goals in two games, surpassing France legend Michel Platini as Les Bleus' all-time leading scorer with 43 goals in 96 matches. France is now virtually guaranteed a spot at the Euro 2008 championships with a draw in its last match against the Ukraine.

In a thoroughly fluffy interview, Bell and Henry talk about his new sponsorship deals with Gillette and Tommy Hilfiger -- the former is a commercial featuring him, tennis champion Roger Federer and Golf champion Tiger Woods; the latter is a partnership to benefit his foundation improving sports and teaching facilities in poor neighborhoods in France -- life in Barcelona versus life in England, his love of the NBA and his friendship with countryman Tony Parker (who plays for the San Antonio Spurs), and of course, the possibility of him playing in MLS someday.

"I think everybody knows that I love America," Henry says. "I always say one day if I can play over there, I would love to. It's still early, but don't get me wrong. I just love the U.S., I love American sports. For me, a dream would to be able to go to training and then to be able to see a game of football, basketball, whatever game." He pointed to New York, which he's visited several times, as the city he would most like to play in. Henry is 30, and his contract with Barcelona runs for three more years.
