How Thierry Henry sees his Red Bull role

Frenchman Thierry Henry, the 33-year-old New York Red Bulls star, says he’s graduated from merely hunting for goals to creating them, grown from being a player that just looked to score to one that looks to lift his team, reports Brian Lewis.

“About scoring goals and being the go-to-player I -- not on a bad way, don’t get me wrong -- I’m past that," Henry said. "I’m more now of the mind making the team play better, if you know what I mean; that’s very important for me."

Henry frequently dropped into the midfield during last week’s 3-2 loss to Chivas de Guadalajara in Mexico -- a game in which the Red Bulls led 2-0 at halftime before subbing liberally. "The game against Chivas, I played in the middle," Henry said. "It was important for me to make this team click, give a pace to the game. After that, Juan (Agudelo) can score four goals every game, Dane Richards or even Bouna (Coundoul) comes up on a corner and scores. Seriously, it’s not my main concern anymore to be the go-to guy. ...

“You go through that at one point in your career where you want everything on you: It’s me. Corner kick, free kick, it’s me. Leave me everything, give me everything. Then you realize one of the most important things in the game is to be able to make the guys around you play better. That’s way harder.
