Henry in the MLS? Surely you jest!

According to Setanta Sports, when asked if he could follow in David Beckham’s footsteps, Thierry Henry replied: “Why not? I love America. I love it here.”

“And, whenever I come here, I feel free. Hopefully, one day.” “You never know what’s going to happen. But, at the moment, I’m still over there.”

Henry was speaking after a charity match in Manhattan and the 30-year-old revealed he still gets recognised even when Stateside. Speculation was rampant that he is on the wish-list of several MLS teams and the Seattle Sounders were one of the clubs said to be keen on a spectacular bid for Henry but the classy France international is likely to remain at Barcelona for at least another year.

“I’m here on vacation, enjoying the town,” he said of New York in The Associated press. “It’s an amazing town. I love New York. It’s not the first time I say it.”

“I come here quite often and it’s pretty nice.” “Sometimes I do get recognised, but I feel free when I’m here, so that’s the most important thing.” “I love it.”

Surely if Thierry Henry were to follow Beckham to America, it would be for an exhorbitant fee and a ridiculous salary but a move like this would beckon the question, is the MLS now a retirement league for former European stars? A place where they can be paid the same (and even more that what they got in their prime) for a less demanding output?
