Theirry Henry stats his career in Arsenal

Hello! Today I want to talk about the one of the legendary of Arsenal, Theirry Henry, Joining from Juventus at 1999 worth 19.7M pounds, Theiry Henry becoming top scorer in Arsenal football history with bagging up into 228 goals in 377 games. French-born striker, who started in Monaco in a youth time joining Juventus at 1996. He won several awards at Monaco such as FFA Young Player Of The Year before departure to the Italian Giant. But then, he failed to meet an expectation as he left Juventus to joining Arsenal. Theiry Henry starts his career at Arsenal with an emphatic fashion as he scored more than 20 goals in his first season at Arsenal. 

Wenger immediately turned Henry back into a striker and soon had the deadliest weapon in the Premier League wearing No. 14 for Arsenal. Over the next eight seasons he scored a club-record 228 goals in 377 games, winning two league titles and two F.A. Cup finals. He came to define the bulk of Wenger's time in charge.

By 2007, after a heartbreaking defeat in the Champions League final against Barcelona, Henry seemed to have grown unsettled in England. Unexpectedly, he was then sold to Barcelona. Once again playing on the wing, he has not been as effective in Spain.

But then, he still the greatest striker of Arsenal all time. Arsenal fan surely missed the goalscoring like Theiry Henry. I ended up my entry with a video by Arsenal goalscoring records player, Theiry Henry.

Thank you for reading. :)
