The definitive biography of the Arsenal, France and Barcelona legend
Thierry Henry – gifted, charismatic and a world class footballer of the highest order – has passed into Arsenal legend as the hero of Arsene Wenger's killer team that finally ended Manchester United's domination, winning two league titles and three FA cups. He was also instrumental in France's World Cup and European Cup glories in 1998 and 2000 and continued his incredibly successful career at Barcelona by winning the treble in his first season.
But now in the autumn of his career, Thierry's crown has slipped – playing out his days in an obscure American team and disgracing himself and his team at a dismal World Cup 2010. So who is the real Thierry Henry? Drawing from countless interviews, as well as his own observations over Henry's entire career, award-winning author Philippe Auclair has produced the most complete portrait of the Arsenal hero ever to be written. With exclusive access to Henry's inner circle, Auclair has reached this most elusive and closed of footballers to produce a biography as raw, shocking and thought-provoking as it is celebratory of Henry's outstanding flair and talent.
