Arsenal legend Thierry Henry announced his retirement from professional football earlier this morning.
The former France international left MLS outfit New York Red Bulls earlier this month and had been contemplating his future over the last few days.
Henry has now decided to quit his playing career and will join Sky Sports as a football expert.
The 37-year-old has achieved huge success in his career, winning the World Cup, the European Championship and the Champions League.
Some of Henry’s greatest moments came during his time at Arsenal. The Frenchman was on the books of the North London outfit from 1999 to 2007, winning the Premier League twice and the FA Cup three times.
Following Henry’s big announcement today, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and the club’s fans took to social networking site Twitter to sing the Frenchman's praises.
There's no striker in recent history that was a better finisher of the ball. My childhood hero. #KingHenry— (@OmotundeOredipe) December 16, 2014
When I heard the news of Thierry Henry's retirement I looked at all of my jerseys with the number 14. He was the reason I wore 14 #KingHenry— Steven Henry (@steven240z) December 16, 2014
