Thierry Henry Warms Up

Arsenal supporters take to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the news that club legend Thierry Henry has retired from the professional game.

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.
