Henry participated in only twenty one matches with his former club, the Barcelona, and ended up with a career-low 4 goals the past season. He is also coming from his fourth participation at the World Cup, and even though France came up with one of their worst performances at this important football event, Henry showed that he can still play well, and is currently working hard to be fully fit.
And, if the first 45 minutes of the game against the Tottenham are a sample of what is coming, then it is clear that the 32 year old player still has a lot of good soccer on him.
Hans Back, the head coach for the Red Bulls said that he feels quite satisfied concerning Henry’s performance, and also mentioned that the whole team played very well, which is why he believes that they have a good future and a lot of chances of winning the MLS tournament.
Fans of the Red Bulls received Henry with praise and chants, but those of the Tottenham actually booed the experienced attacker, as the French spent 8 years in the Premier League playing for the Arsenal, the most fierce rival of the Spurs, and during that time, he certainly caused them a great deal of damage.
Since the Red Bulls still have an open designated player spot, they are still in talks with Rafael Marquez from Barcelona and David Trezeguet from the Juventus, and the addition of any of these two players will certainly make of New York the team to beat at the MLS.
