The Major League Soccer club has announced that French striker Thierry Henry has signed for the New York Red Bulls.

Henry joins from Barcelona, where he spent three seasons and won two Spanish league titles as well as the European Champions League. The 32-year-old is France’s leading goalscorer having netted 51 times for his country. His signing on a “multi-year contract” represents a major coup for the Red Bulls and for the MLS. Henry will become one of the most high-profile names in the league, alongside England international David Beckham.

He has signed a multiyear contract ( 4 years) and Henry is expected to make his Red Bulls' debut next Thursday in an exhibition against Premier League club Tottenham.

"Some people might think I am going to go there for vacation - I do actually go there for vacation - but it won't be for vacation this time," Henry, 32, said in a video interview on the club website. "I'm a competitor, and I don't like to lose."

Good Luck Henry!
